Peaceful And Transparent Democratic Process Is The Way Forward
Friday 7th October 2011

On Tuesday, October 11, 2011, registered Liberian voters, beginning from 8AM will exercise their democratic franchise by electing leaders of their choice.

It is expected that on Election Day, Liberians from all walks of life will peacefully assemble at various polling centers and soberly cast their ballots to vote the candidates of their choice free of violence and molestation.

According to the National Elections Commission (NEC) there are a total of 1,798,930 registered voters expected to participate in this year’s presidential and legislative elections in the country. There will be 73 representatives, 15 senators and a president and vice president to be voted for by all eligible voters. There are also 1,780 voting precints and 4,457 polling places.

We believe a peaceful and transparent democratic process is the best way forward in nurturing our nascent democracy.

We have persistently stated that never again should we, as a nation and people, resort to violence or war as a means of addressing whatever grievances we may have.

Therefore we encourage all registered voters and the entire citizenry of Liberia to denounce violence during the legislative and presidential elections and allow these elections to pass under a peaceful and stable atmosphere.
