Fast And Prayer Can Influence Peaceful Elections
Monday 11th July 2011
Liberians have entered a critical time of their history as campaign for the second postwar election got underway on Tuesday. The pending election is considered critical because events unfolding over the past months have sparked concern- not just amongst Liberians-also amongst our international partners.

There have been concerns within the international community that Liberia is rapidly becoming a success a story; however, there are noticeable symptoms of fragility creeping in.

The success of our democracy depends on how we conduct ourselves; our utterances and deportment could enable us obtain a non-violent election result or undo the achievements we’ve made over the years.

The Liberian government has assured unhindered process and, accordingly, indicated that it would not clamp down on opposition politicians for expressing their views on national issues, no matter how critical they may appear to be.

At the same time, the United States Ambassador to Liberia, Linda Thomas- Greenfield, has called on Liberians to ensure that the environment for the election remains peaceful.

The international community which has been and continues to be the fulcrum for the attainment of peace and stability in Liberia is equally concerned about the way and manner in which we will conduct ourselves during these elections.

As political parties begin campaigning, we are also concerned about revelations and prophesy that there’s danger ahead of us. These revelations have come from renowned men and women of God, for which the religious community have commenced fasting and praying to avert any unfavorable occurrence.
