Gov’t of Liberia, Partners Reschedule Census Date
Following Drama surrounding the holding of this year’s census, the government of Liberia through the House of Representatives, top officials of the Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services (LISGIS), and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) have resolved to extend the starting date of the census by additional 15 days.
Every part of the country with thousands of applicants who accepted to undergo LISGIS’ training to serve as enumerators has complained that their names were omitted after successfully passing the aptitude test.
Even, some of those whose names were posted on the LISGIS website as successful candidates were denied entry to their assigned training venues.
That means the national census will now kick off on November 22, 2022, instead of October 24, this Monday.
