Hailing Ecowas̢۪ Position On 2011 Elections
Friday 16th September 2011

When he addressed the media in Monrovia Wednesday, September 14, 2011, the head of the ECOWAS indicated that it will stand by Liberia in its quest to conduct free, fair and transparent elections as the regional body remains a major player in the peace process in the country.

Victor Gbeho, who is part of a visiting delegation of ECOWAS in the country, said ECOWAS has invested a lot in Liberia and will not watch things fall apart in the country.

According to him the Commission is in the country to assess the political situation in the country that would subsequently inform the judgment of ECOWAS as whether Liberia is prepared for free, fair and transparent elections. We welcome the comments by heads of the ECOWAS Commission because they are timely and very prudent.

We think ECOWAS position on the path leading to the 2011 elections are in the right step, and therefore, must be encouraged by all Liberians, particularly the political actors.
