Long Term Observers’ report from the counties this month suggests that Liberians should brace themselves for several reports and images of impassable roads as we get deeper into the rainy season. About half of all submissions from the districts find that roads are not maintained. This has been an observable trend from the launch of this newsletter in January to date. Additional submissions follow last month’s trend showing that lawmakers have not improved on constituency visits or reporting to electorates. Taken together, we wonder how those lawmakers who have not reached out to their districts can exercise proper representation of their constituency’s interest with executive authorities such as the Ministry of Public Works (MPW), the authority responsible for maintaining roads throughout the country.
