Liberian Lawmakers Cut their Salaries to Save Money for Citizens in 2020 Budget

Reports coming from Liberia say federal lawmakers of the country have passed the country’s 2020 budget with massive cuts to their salaries and allowances.

According to FrontPage Africa, a magazine in the West African country, the lawmakers, in a selfless move on October 1, voted unanimously to have their earnings slashed.

The lawmakers cut the proposed budget by the executive arm led by President George Weah, a former international football player, by almost $7million.

Weah had proposed $532.9m but the lawmakers approved $526 million after cutting their own earnings and those of the officials of the judiciary.
