NEC Begins Collecting LD5 For Card  Replacement In Bong
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, July 25, (LINA) – The  National Elections Commission (NEC) Bong County branch has begun  collecting  LD5.00 as fee for the
replacement of missing and damaged voter cards.

 

The exercise is in consonance with Count 2, Section 3.5 of the Liberian Constitution on registration card replacement which states
that “In the event of loss or destruction of the registration card and after proof has been established, the registrar shall issue a new
card for a minimum fee of LD$5.00 to be paid in the Internal Revenue of government."

 

However, an insider at the local revenue office in the county said they were finding it extremely difficult to issue GOL Flag Receipts
for money as low as LD$5.00.

He told the Liberia News Agency that due to the huge cost attached to the issuance of a receipt, card replacers have been requested to wait
until they are 20 in number, at which time a single receipt for
LD$100.00 will be issued to them.

Bong County Senior Election Magistrate Daniel Newland told the LINA correspondent in the county that the latest decision is intended to
reduce constraints and make the process more convenient for citizens.
He noted that instead of candidates paying the money into GOL revenue, they will collect a minimum of LD$250.00 and deposit same with the
list of names to the local finance office in the county.

 

An announcement regarding the change has meanwhile been placed on community radios operating in the county.
