MONROVIA, November 11(LINA) -The House of Representatives has adopted a Resolution authorizing the National Elections Commission (NEC) to conduct the Special Senatorial Election on December 16,2014.

The Lower House adopted the Resolution Tuesday during the 19th Day Sitting of its Extraordinary Session, with 30 lawmakers for and two against, according to the Liberia News Agency.

NEC in early November submitted December 16 as a proposed date to the National Legislature for approval to conduct the Special Senatorial Election.

The Commission in September this year proposed the suspension of the election which was slated for October14 due to the Ebola outbreak in the country.

In response, the Legislature endorsed the proposal through a Joint Resolution approved by the President, in which the Commission was mandated to conduct the Special Senatorial Election not later than December 20, 2014.

Following the adoption of the resolution, the House of Representatives forwarded it to the Liberian Senate for concurrence.

Meanwhile, the Liberia News Agency has reliably learnt that the Liberian Senate has deferred discussions on the Special Senatorial Election to Thursday, November 13.
