“To everything there is a time and a season to every purpose under the heavens”. It is my conviction that Liberia is at the crossroads and this is the time for institution building and strengthening of our emerging democracy. Our economy is poised to take off and we all look forward to our people enjoying their God given natural resources.
There is no doubt that all of this rest upon the choice of our people to exercise their constitutional rights by electing their national leaders in a peaceful, free, fair and transparent manner.
Constitutionally, the National Elections Commission (NEC) is clothed with the authority to guarantee that elections are held in a free, fair and credible atmosphere but above all, the Commission derived its moral authority from the confidence of the people of Liberia in the ability of the NEC to freely and impartially conduct elections. There is no doubt that in some cases public sentiment could become stronger than the law.Click to download this entire document
