House Plenary Invites NEC Chairman

By Winnie T. Dixon, Intern

MONROVIA, July 10, (LINA) - The House of Representatives has invited the Chairman of the National Elections Commission (NEC), Cllr. Jerome Korkoyah, to appear before it on Tuesday, July 15, to address issues regarding the October 14 Mid-Term Senatorial Election.

The Representatives want Korkoyah to provide clarification on the establishment of the voters' lost and damaged identification cards replacement precincts throughout Liberia.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Plenary reached the decision Thursday following the reading of a communication addressed to Speaker J. Alexander Tyler by Montserrado County District 5 Representative, Thomas Fallah, on the pending senatorial election and the number of precincts to be used.

Fallah, in his communication, stated that the chairman’s report is worrisome because of the 99 replacement precincts set up by NEC for Liberia’s Electoral Districts, only one is being allotted his constituencyfor the replacement exercises.

He indicated that the commission’s decision is a form of denial for the over 26, 000 registered voters in his district and believes that the same applies for all other areas in the country.

“This request could not have come at a better time considering the fact that it is only barely two months to the elections,” he pointed out,  adding, “ therefore, there is a compelling need for us to have more information on why the over 4,000 voters’ precincts for lost and damaged voters IDs were reduced.”  

Fallah suggested an increase in the number of voting precincts for registered voters ID replacement to ensure the government’s promotion of democratic electoral processes.
