UN Envoy On President's Suspension Of Senatorial Polls
By Prince Nagbe

MONROVIA, October 10 (LINA) -The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General, Karin Landgren, has said the proclamation by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf suspending the October 14, 2014 Special Senatorial Election has given Liberians clarity on the matter.

According to Landgren, keeping the public informed of the options under consideration will reduce uncertainty and speculation.

The UN envoy noted that the proclamation by the Liberian leader is in line with the National Elections Commission (NEC) recommendation, which was prompted by the Ebola epidemic and the State of Emergency.

According to an UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) press release, Madam Landgren made the statement at a press conference she hosted Thursday in the conference room of UNMIL at the Pan-African Plaza in Sinkor.

“I remain confident that Liberia will move forward in addressing the timing and manner of these elections in a way that best serves the interests of the country and its people,” Landgren pointed out.

In her proclamation, President Sirleaf requested that NEC consults with a broad range of stakeholders, including political parties, independent candidates, civil society organizations, as well as national and international health authorities to determine the way forward, including finding a new date for the Senatorial Elections.
