CDC Violates Elections Law in Gbarpolu

By Emmanuel Mondaye, Gbarpolu County Correspondent

GBARPOLU, Feb 9 (LINA) – In the wake of the recent warning by the Chairman of the National Elections Commission (NEC) to political parties and prospective independent candidates against early campaigning, the opposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) has been caught in the dragnet.

NEC Gbarpolu County Elections Magistrate, Duck Sarnor, said the CDC violated the election law by displaying one of its campaign materials, a poster bearing the photograph of the party’s standard bearer, George Weah, and Secretary-General Nathaniel McGill.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) over the weekend, Magistrate Sarnor said the party violated Section 24.3 of the election guidelines, which prohibits political parties and independent candidates from using posters, flyers, buntings, and advertisements on billboards, public and private buildings, light poles and the internet, amongst others.

He said the posters have been distributed and placed in several towns and villages as well as Bopolu City in contravention of the elections law of Liberia.

Sarnor disclosed that the NEC is currently investigating the violation because it could spark off tension, especially during the ongoing nationwide Voters Roll Update Exercise in the county.
