NEC Shuts Down 4 VR Centers In 2 Counties
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, February 28 (LINA) - The National Elections Commission (NEC) has announced the closure of four voter registration centers in two counties.

Addressing a press conference in Monrovia Monday, NEC Chairman Jerome Korkoya said two of the centers are in Montserrado County, while the other two
are in Bong County.

Korkoya stated that the centers were closed because they have already reached the maximum number of 3,000 registrants prescribed by the commission.

At the same time, the NEC boss has acknowledged that the creation of 300 additional registration centers across the country to provide easy access to registration and reduce walking distances in rural communities, did not materialize.

Korkoya noted that additional measures will be put in place to alleviate the plight of people in the leeward counties, particularly women, many of whom, in addition to domestic tasks, have to walk long distances to register.

He added that the NEC has instructed its magistrates to compile a list of places where a sizeable number of citizens live, but lack registration centers.
