AMBASSADOR NKRUMAH SAYS ECOWAS COMMISSION BRIEFED ABOUT CURRENT STATUS OF LIBERIA’S ELECTORAL PROCESS

Date:

MONROVIA – ECOWAS Special Representative to Liberia, Ambassador Josephine Nkrumah, says the ECOWAS Commission has been briefed about the current status of Liberia’s electoral process.

Ambassador Nkrumah said so far, the Commission is impressed by the use of a biometric system during the voter registration exercise and the Government’s funding of the elections.

The ECOWAS Representative to Liberia made the comments Friday, July 7, 2023, in an exclusive ELBC interview on the sideline of the ECOWAS Council of Ministers’ 90th Meeting in Guinea-Bissau.

She said: ”While the National Elections Commission is conducting the electoral process as planned, the spread of fake news and political rhetoric that fuels tension remains a challenge.”

Ambassador Josephine Nkrumah stated that the peace and stability of Liberia, during the current electoral period, are shouldered on the conduct and words of influential political actors.

At the same time, Ambassador Josephine Nkrumah has called for support for Liberia’s bid for a seat at the United Nations Security Council.

On Thursday, July 6, 2023, Liberia’s Head of delegation at the Council of Ministers meeting, Ambassador Al-Hassan Conte, disclosed that the Country was lobbying for the support of others for its UN Security Council bid.

Speaking in an ELBC interview Friday, July 7, 2023, in Guinea-Bissau, Ambassador Nkrumah said:” A seat at the UN Security Council for Liberia would be a huge step in its stance on global issues.”

The ECOWAS Representative to Liberia promised to join the Liberian delegation in its lobby by advocating for colleagues in other countries.

She encouraged ECOWAS member states to boost Liberia’s bid through a united voice at various meetings, both at the Ministerial and Heads of State and Government levels. ELBC

  1. I think Ambassador Nkrumah will do better if she and her ECOWAS people focus on the need to have a very transparent, credible, open and fair electoral process that WILL NOT BE RIGGED by the incumbent–to avoid violence or conflict in the country. U.N. representation or not is not what is urgent for Liberians now as they go into very consequential elections in October.
