The National Election Commission or NEC has announced its readiness for next week's November 8 run-off, days after its former chair resigned over a controversial letter.
NEC's acting Chairperson told a news conference Tuesday that all necessary materials are in place with polling staff training being conducted. The NEC acting Chair further announced that the movements of sensitive and non-sensitive materials to the NEC warehouses in the southeastern parts of the country have been completed.
She said the movements of other sensitive materials are currently underway, adding that civic voter education activities are being conducted throughout the country.
Mrs. Nelson told journalists that new observer groups are being accredited and at the same time encourage the Unity Party and the Congress for Democratic Change to fully participate in the contest.
She said the commission wishes to urge all supporters of these parties and the Liberian people to maintain the same level of discipline as demonstrated during the first round of voting on October 11 to ensure a peaceful Elections Day on November 8.
She concluded that all 54 complaints received by the NEC after the October 11 elections have been disposed off, except 16 of them which are currently being investigated.
