Wrangling Over Salala Chief Elder Poll Result
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

SALALA, May 27 (LINA) – The County Inspector of Bong County, Willian Kollie, has canceled results of the recent Chief Elder election in Salala District, Bong County for alleged procedural errors.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the people of Salala District elected Oldman Fahyn Queely as Chief Elder of the district last month.

However, Kollie said as head of the traditional people in the county, he needed to supervise the proceedings, adding that because the process was not observed by him, he could not honor the result.

He has called for a fresh election.

However, Representative Adam Bill Conneh, Commissioner Karmone A. Kanneh and Paramount Chief Sekou A. Sirleaf opposed Kollie’s decision and vowed that there will be no fresh election.

Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy is reportedly in support of the holding of a new election. Commissioner Kannah and Chief Sirleaf claimed they wrote Kollie twice
inviting him to a meeting to find an amicable solution to the problem, but he failed to show up.

The wrangling over who is the legitimate chief elder of the district has dragged on  for some time now between Messrs. Henry Lippay and William Foday, a situation that triggered the suspension of the two and gave birth to the election of Chief Qeely.

The newly-elected Chief Elder is yet to be recognized by the county inspector.
