Leader of Liberian delegation to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Parliament, Edwin Melvin Snowe Junior has appealed to members presenting country reports to focus more on the written text.

According to the leader of the Liberian delegation it is not right for presenters of country report to go outside the written text they are presenting by taking more hours.

He made particular reference to Senegal, when Abdoulaye Vilane was presenting his country report and took more than the stipulated twenty five minutes given by the fourth Deputy Speaker  Orlando Pereira Dias.

Most MPs started clapping in protest to signify to Abdoulaye Vilane to leave the stage, but he did not agree with them and went ahead with his country report until he was through with it.

Mr. Abdoulaye Vilane said, “you just want me to stop reading I have three issues I need to touch on, it is important for you to listen to me well we have to show our pride, I do not know why you are making such noise, is there a problem with my text?”

Fourth Deputy Speaker Orlando Pereira Dias had to appeal to MPs to allow the Senegal representative to conclude his presentation.
