NEC Begins Voters Roll Education May 18

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 16 (LINA) – The National Elections Commission (NEC) is expected to start a month-long voters roll education exercise on Thursday, May 18, in preparation for the October 10 Presidential and Legislative elections.

The exercise, which ends on June 18, will intertwine with the provisional voters roll exhibition running from June 12-17, according to the Senior Magistrate of the NEC in Upper Bong County, Daniel Newland.

Newland told Radio Gbarnga program Election Watch recently that unlike the past, the commission’s current regulations require all registrants to turnout for the exhibition.

He added that voter cards with problems after the final voter roll will not be accepted on elections day.

He admonished Liberians to attach seriousness to the upcoming exhibition of the provisional voters roll update to secure their participation in the October Presidential and Legislative elections.

Newland then lauded the NEC for its recent training held in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, calling it “a remarkable initiative” in strengthening the legal capacity of magistrates around the country.

Newland said the NEC magistrates were basically taught handling of complaints, investigative procedures and management of conflict issues emanating from the election, among others.

The week-long seminar brought together magistrates from across the country.
