NEC Ends Inspection Of Political Party Offices In Bong
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, November 8 (LINA) - The National Elections Commission (NEC) has concluded inspection of the offices of political parties in Bong County as part of activities leading to the 2017 presidential and legislative elections.

The exercise is intended to ensure that registered political parties in the country have active and functional offices in Bong County in line with the electoral law.

The NEC Commissioner with oversight for Bong and Nimba counties, Jonathan Weedor, told the Liberia News Agency recently that the exercise was executed successfully.

He said during the inspection tour, he noticed only 15 of the more than 20 political parties in the country have offices in Bong County.

According to Weedor, some of the parties have up-to-date offices, while others have very deplorable structures as their offices.

He emphasized that political party offices should have all necessary facilities, including bathrooms and conference hall.

The NEC Commissioner said some of the parties that fell short of the requirements will be penalized in accordance with law, adding that members of the Board of Commissioners will decide appropriate actions to be taken against the parties concerned.

Weedor stopped short of naming parties that have dilapidated structures and those with up-to-date offices, saying detailed information will be disclosed to the public in a comprehensive report.

Sources said the All Liberian Party, Movement for Economic Empowerment  and the United People’s Party are said to be amongst parties that have the best offices in the county, while the Union of Liberian Democrats and True Whig Party are renting single rooms, with others in deplorable facilities.
