The Chairman of the National Elections Commission (NEC) Cllr. Jerome G Korkoya has reiterated the commitment of the Commission to ensure that Persons with Disabilities (PWD) in Liberia are given equal access to participate in all of the electoral activities in the country.

Chairman Korkoya said to ensure this, the Commission will do all it can to make Voting Precincts accessible to Persons with Disabilities in the country beginning with the 2017 Presidential and Representative Elections.

The Chairman of NEC statement was contained in a remark he made Wednesday, February 22, 2017 during a one-day Round Table Discussion with a number of Elections stakeholders including People with Disabilities and Political Party Representatives.

The NEC Boss wants Registered Political Parties to include Persons with Disabilities at all levels of their party’s leadership.

In separate remarks, the Inclusion Officer of IFES, Rebecca Aaberg said it was the right of Persons with Disabilities to be fully included in all of the Electoral Processes and that they must not just be seen as mere voters or candidates in election.

The Inclusion Officer of IFES speaking on the objective of the Round Table Discussion said it was intended to consider the possibility of a resolution for Persons with Disabilities to have access and opportunity for inclusion into all electoral activities.

The one day Round Table Discussion which was held at the Headquarters of the NEC was organized by the Political Affairs Section of the NEC in collaboration with International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) with funding from the United States Agency for International Development or (USAID)
