ROBERTSPORT, April 24 (LINA) - A two-day regional seminar on women participation in the electoral process organized by the National Elections Commission (NEC), opened Thursday in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County.

The seminar, which gathered over 100 participants from Grand Cape Mount, Bomi, Lofa and Gbarpolu counties, is being held on the theme: “Regional seminar on women political participation in electoral processes: best practices, lessons learned, challenges and strategies for moving forward.”

In remarks during the opening ceremony, NEC Co-chairman, Counselor Sarah M. Toe, thanked the citizens of Cape Mount for the high turnout during the Voter Roll Update (VRU) conducted early this year.
