By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, February 22 (LINA) - Upper Bong County Election Magistrate Daniel Newland has announced the immediate closure of two voter registration centers in Electoral District Three.

The centers are Sunday Market in Bassa Community and the Wohn-a-Nehn School on the Camp Tubman Military Barracks in Gbarnga City.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency, Newland said the centers are closed because they have met the National Elections Commission (NEC) requirement of 3,000 registrants per center.

Newland, however, said centers are still available in electoral district three, especially in the Gbarnga area, for registration.

He named the John F. Bakalu, Gboveh High, William V. S. Tubman Gray and Melekie as canters that are still open around the Gbarnga area in electoral district three.

Newland disclosed that up to date, 60,135 persons have registered in Upper Bong County.

He noted that the figures were collected from the 86 centers in upper Bong County from February 1- 21.

The Upper Bong County Elections Magistrate encouraged those in Upper Bong to continue to be peaceful and assured that the Commission will not comprise its policies regarding the voter registration exercise.
