 Elections Magistrates Receive Mandate to Conduct 2014 Senatorial Election May 26th, 2014

The Clerk of Writ of the National Elections Commission (NEC) has mandated the 19 Elections Magistrates across the country to conduct a Special Senatorial for 15 senatorial seats across the country.

Madam Antoinette B. Johnson gave the mandate Friday, May 23, 2014, when she officially issued a Writ of Election on the Magistrates at a ceremony held at the headquarters of the Commission in Monrovia.

Madam Johnson mandated the Magistrates to conduct the Special Senatorial Election on October 14, 2014, from the hours of 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM in all 15 counties of the country.

She authorized the magistrates to certify the endorsement of the writ of election by submitting to her office, the results of the Election following the completion of the electoral process in the fifteen counties of Liberia.

Madam Johnson had earlier been mandated by the Chairman of the Commission, Jerome Korkoya, to issue the Writ of Election to the 19 Elections Magistrates for the conduct of the October 14 Special senatorial election.

He directed that the last day for Nomination of Candidates by duly registered political parties, alliances, coalitions and independent candidates shall be the 24th Day of July.

A Writ of Election is a legal instrument that authorizes Elections Magistrates to proceed with the conduct of elections.

The issuance of the writ of Election is a requirement of Chapter 4 sub-section 4.3 of the New Elections Law of 1986. 

The New Elections Law of 1986 requires the issuance of a Writ of Election not later than 90 days prior to the conduct of an election.
