House Studies President Weah’s Salary Cut Proposals


The House of Representatives is studying a proposal from President George M. Weah calling on them to follow his lead and cut their salary and benefits by 25 percent as part of efforts to address the country’s ailing economy. Sixty-nine (69) members of the House (four seats are empty because of electoral results disputes) have established a Joint Committee, comprising the Committees on Ways, Means, Finance & Development Planning and Public Account to review the ‘Salary & Benefits Cut Proposal’ and advise Plenary in due course. “We can’t open this communication for discussion, because a committee has already been set-up and we expect their report,” Dr. “The President and the Vice-President shall receive salaries which shall be determined by the Legislature and be paid by the Republic. Such salaries shall be subject to taxes as defined by law and shall neither be increased nor diminished during the period for which the President and the Vice-President shall have been elected.”
