 Commissioner Kpangbai: Validation of CSO Code of Conduct Will Enhance the Work of NEC   August 4th, 2020

Monrovia….. A Commissioner of the National Elections Commission (NEC) says the validation of  the Code of Conduct for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) will enhance the work of NEC.

Commissioner Barsee Kpangbai made the remarks Tuesday August 4, 2020 at the end of a one-day exercise to Review and Validate the Code of Conduct to be used by CSOs throughout the conduct of the 2020 Special Senatorial Elections (SSE).

The NEC Civic and Voter Education (CVE) Section organized the forum, which was held at the Headquarters of the National Elections Commission in Sinkor. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP), with funding from the European Union, Irish Aid, governments of Sweden and Canada sponsored the one-day Civil Society Organizations Code of Conduct forum.

Commissioner Kpangbai, with Oversight for CVE, said the review of the document is necessary in strengthening cohesion amongst CSO during the elections.

He said when developed, the Code of Conduct will serve as the only framework for CSOs to conduct all of their activities.

Commissioner Kpangbai said Civil Society Groups and the NEC share nearly the same vision as partners: “to provide information to citizens on the electoral process to buttress the efforts of the NEC”.

For her part, the Commissioner with Oversight for Gender and Communication praised CSOs for the pivotal role they continue to play to sustain peace in Liberia by providing information to citizens in ensuring a participatory free, fair and transparent election.

However, Commissioner Josephine Kou Gaye said to ensure this, the Code of Conduct must be validated to meet acceptable standards and values as a policy and guideline document for CSOs towards free, fair and transparent elections.
