NAYMOTE Ends Women Leadership Training In Bong

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, April 18 (LINA) - The National Youth Movement for Transparent Election has completed a week-long training for 100 women aspirants and campaign managers from across the 73 electoral districts in Liberia.

The training was held at the Development Education Network Liberia (DEN-L) Compound in Gbarnga, Bong County.

NAYMOTE Executive Director Eddie Jarwolo said the aim of the training was to increase women’s representation in the Legislature and empower them to participate in competitive politics and governance in Liberia.

Jarwolo said the women’s leadership and political participation training also was intended to prepare female aspirants for the 2017 legislative election.

The NAYMOTE Executive Director told participants that election is a complicated procedure that requires money, skills and hard work to get the needed result which, he noted, is free and fair elections.

He indicated that NAYMOTE will work with the Coalition of Political Parties Women to see how best female aspirants can get on the tickets of political parties.

"We pledge our support to work with the coalition of women. As we get to town, we are going to have a meeting to do a plan on how to work to engage. We are very interested in getting the various sectors in the counties very active. You will never get money from anyone if you can't work together," he emphasized.

He thanked the participants for the level of patience they exhibited during the five days, adding, "Use the knowledge to impact your communities; work very hard; there's no time to rest and start practicing how to develop your campaign messages. Public speaking is important, as is engaging the media.”

Also speaking at the close of the training, the Head of Political Affairs at the National Elections Commission (NEC), Joseph Yarsaih, explained to the women how one can be eligible as a candidate and what steps are required to meet all of the necessary qualifications.

He further explained NEC’s calendar of events, as he drilled the women through the entire procedures leading to October 10, 2017, polling day.
