“Free, Fair Elections Crucial To Liberia’s Peace”- Brown
By Prince S. Nagbe

MONROVIA, August 26 (LINA) - Liberia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Lewis G. Brown, has said the holding of successful election in Liberia in 2017 is critical to the consolidation of the nation’s peace and democratic transformation.

Delivering a statement at the UN Security Council briefing on the 32nd Progress Report of UN Secretary General on the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) in New York Thursday, Brown said the Liberian Government understands the significance of these elections and is determined to deliver a process and an outcome that are inclusive, participatory, credible, free and fair.

He informed the Council that there are 23 registered political parties, each of which is a member of the Inter-Party Consultative Committee, a forum of political parties dedicated to work with the National Elections Commission, and other relevant stakeholders, to consistently explore avenues of cooperation aimed at maintaining a peaceful atmosphere before, during and after the elections.

Brown called on the Council, the international community, ECOWAS and African Union Commissions to support the Liberian Government implement these critical undertakings.

In October of 2017, Liberia will conduct Legislative and Presidential elections, which when carried out successfully will witness the transfer of power from one democratically-elected government to another for the first time in about seven decades.
