MRU Youth MP Prods Bong Youths To Register To Vote
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, January 22 (LINA) - A Bong County parliamentarian to the Mano River Union Youth Parliament has launched a campaign in the county to encourage young people to obtain voting cards during the upcoming voter registration exercise.

The National Elections Commission (NEC) has set February 1 to March 7 as voter registration period for the presidential and legislative elections scheduled for October this year.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency in Gbarnga at the weekend, Kusee Armstrong said young people constitute the highest percentage of eligible voters in the country and encouraged them to use their number wisely in the upcoming elections.

Armstrong said the ultimate power to positively shift governance for the overall good of the nation largely rests on the young people and hence they should see themselves as major actors in the elections.

He explained that the MRUYP Bong Chapter has started holding consultations with some young people in the county and that the exercise will be extended to other areas through different youth organizations in the county.

Meanwhile, Armstrong has termed the election of James Kolleh as Speaker of the Manor River Union Youth Parliament as a breakthrough for Bong County.

He explained that the election of Kolleh will not only pave the way for youths of the country, but sends a message that Bong County is prepared to contribute to the building of a more conscious youth community in Liberia.

At the same time, Armstrong has disclosed that plans are underway to organize a program in Bong County to appreciate youths of the county for their support that ensured their election to the parliament.
