 British Government Committed to Supporting Democracy In Liberia ………..says Ambassador Cochrane-Dyet April 29th, 2013

The British Ambassador to Liberia, Fergus Cochrane-Dyet, says his government would continue to support the National Elections Commission in all spheres of its endeavor.

Ambassador Cochrane-Dyet says this is because the UK government places premium on the sustenance of good governance and democracy in Liberia noting that the work of the NEC is very critical to meeting this very essential quest of his government.

The UK Ambassador made the disclosure Friday when he made a courtesy call on the Chairman and members of the reconstituted Board of Commissioners of the National Elections Commission at the NEC’s Headquarters in Monrovia.

The British Envoy said despite the fact that Liberia is making significant progress towards building peace and democracy, the role of the NEC remains critically important in the ongoing peace building process as well as the conduct of future elections in the country.

Speaking earlier, the Chairman of the Commission, Jerome George Korkoya, lauded the British Government for its numerous support to the Commission through the Basket Fund that provides technical and logistical backstopping in the conduct of national elections in the country.

Chairman Korkoya said the NEC would continue to look forward to the support of the government of the UK in the ensuing 2014 election as well as future elections to be conducted by the Commission.

He said such support can be provided through technical, logistical as well as institutional and human resource capacity building for staff of the electoral management body of the country.

The NEC Boss outlined the quest of the Commission to continuously conducting free, fair and transparent and credible elections in the country through the garnering support from not only government, nut all bi-lateral and multilateral institutions that are inclined to upholding the tenants of democracy around the world, especially Liberia, a country evolving from the ashes of a devastating civil war..

Cllr. Korkoya updated the British ambassador on the status of the ensuing May 7, 2013 Senatorial By-election in Grand Bassa County and noted that all of the essential elements of elections have already been put into place to ensure the successful conduct of the By-Election
