 NEC Holds Consultation with Political Parties on Electoral Law Reform October 17th, 2012

The National Elections Commission today began a two-day Inter-Party Consultative Committee (IPCC) Consultative Workshop on Electoral Law Reform at its headquarters in Monrovia.

The workshop brings together 60 participants, two persons from each of the thirty political parties operating in the country.
Representatives from the EU, UNDP, IFES, UNMIL, and the Elections Coordinating Committee are observing the workshop.
In her remarks at the opening ceremony of the workshop, the Acting Chairman of the National Elections Commission, Cllr. Elizabeth J. Nelson, said during the month of August, a team of NEC technicians headed by the Senior Legal Counsel of the Commission toured five of the fifteen counties of Liberia to solicit the views of the public about the reform process.
 
“The outcomes of those interactions were quite astonishing! Citizens of Liberia spoke out so profoundly on what they perceive as huddles in the Commission’s endeavor to institutionalize electoral democracy in Liberia. “
 
She noted that the gathering of heads of political parties in the IPCC Electoral Law Reform Consultative Workshop was another step by the Commission to reach out, as far as possible, in gathering views of stakeholders in the promulgation of laws that will govern the electoral process in Liberia.
 
“In the unfolding months, the discussions will be widened even further. Meetings will be held with heads of women organizations, the Liberia National Bar Association, the media and many other groupings with the view of gathering inputs into the reform process. The outcome of all the discussions will inform the drafting of an Electoral Law Reform Bill that will be submitted to the National Legislature,” the NEC Boss noted.
