NEC Begins Inspection of Political Party Offices 

By Emmanuel Mondaye, LINA Gbarpolu County Correspondent

BOPOLU, July 23 (LINA) - The National Elections Commission (NEC) has started inspection of the offices of political parties and independent candidates who have applied to contest IN the October 2014 Mid-term Senatorial elections.

An official source at the NEC office in Monrovia said the inspection of the offices nationwide was one of the requirements for qualifying contestants for the October polls.

After a candidate files an application at the NEC office in Monrovia, the source said, the Commission’s Magistrate in the county of the applicant is then informed to do the inspection and report to head office.

In Bopolu City in Gbarpolu County on Tuesday, the NEC team visited the offices of the ruling Unity Party, Congress for Democratic Change, Liberty Party, Alternative National Congress and the United Progressive Congress.

NEC Magistrate in Gbarpolu County, Duke Sarnor, told the Liberia News Agency that the inspection exercise was in line with the mandate of the NEC to ensure full compliance by political parties with its guidelines.

He revealed that although the parties had offices that are visible, they lack basic furniture, electrical appliances, signboards and other features as requested by NEC.

He then warned political parties in the county to act in accordance with the guidelines set by the Commission.

Meanwhile, former Gbarpolu Senator Daniel Flomo Naanten has been named as the senatorial candidate for the Alternative National Congress, while Fatuma Zinnah is the senatorial contestant for the People’s United Party.
