GC Vision

The Governance Commission was a creation of the 2003 Accra Peace Accord to attend to Liberia’s numerous problems occasioned by the 14 year civil war. As we all know, the years of civil war left behind a complete breakdown of democratic governance in Liberia. Rebel factions took over government functionaries, appointed senior government officials and on many occasions brought in their own “civil servants”. There are even political parties today that are offshoot s of rebel factions.  There was a complete breakdown of real democratic governance in Liberia.  We had rebel governments that were really not answerable to the Liberian people.
