Cllr. Jerome G. Korkoya

Chairman of the National Elections Commission

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press, Fellow Liberians:

INTRODUCTION

The National Elections Commission (NEC) congratulates all registered voters of Grand Bassa County who turned out on May 7, 2013 to vote in the County’s Senatorial By-Election. The Commission also extends heartfelt gratitude to the entire citizenry of Grand Bassa for their good deportment during the process.

The Commission further wishes to express thanks and appreciation to the Government of Liberia,  all poll workers, observer groups, the media, The Liberia National Police and partners for their supportive role which resulted to the successful conduct of the By-Election.

PROVISIONAL RESULTS

Ladies and gentlemen of the press, consistent with the transparency and credibility practices of the National Elections Commission, the process of on-the-spot-counting of votes, immediately followed the close of the polling process at all of the  336 polling places across Grand Bassa County.

The results of votes cast at each of the 336 polling places in the county have now begun to come in at the tally center here at the magisterial office in Buchanan City.

Progressive Results reported from 183 polling places or 54.46 % of the 336 polling places in the county are as follow:


Members of the press, the National Elections Commission wishes to inform you that the final results of the By-Election will be announced on Thursday, May 9, 2013 at the Fair Ground Pavilion and the winner of the By-Election will be certificated by the NEC at that ceremony.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF OFFICIAL RESULTS

The Commission appreciates the role the media is playing in covering this election and asserts that only the NEC has the authority to announce official results of elections. The announcement of results by unauthorized outlets ahead of the Commission is not approved by the NEC. 

The Commission wishes to state that as the electoral management body of the Republic of Liberia, it is the only entity with the constitutional mandate to conduct elections, announce the results and certificate the winners therefrom.    

I Thank You.
