U.S. EMBASSY CONFIDENT IN LIBERIA’S ELECTIONS COMMISSION’S CAPACITY TO CONDUCT FREE AND FAIR ELECTION – STATEMENT

Date:

MONROVIA – The U.S. Embassy is confident in Liberia’s National Elections Commission’s (NEC) capacity to administer a free and fair election.  During the first round of voting, NEC workers demonstrated extraordinary dedication, carrying voting materials across flooded rivers, and counting ballots late into the night.  The NEC has been preparing for this election for years with the technical support of many stakeholders, including the United States Agency for International Development.

Thousands of independent election observers – both international and domestic – will also participate in the democratic process.  From the opening of polling stations on November 14 until the last vote is tallied, election observers will play a key role in ensuring a free and fair election.  The U.S. Embassy is also confident that election observers will carry out their important responsibilities in an independent and unbiased manner, as they did during last month’s first round election.

We again applaud Liberians for their enthusiastic turn-out for the October 10 election and encourage all Liberians to vote tomorrow in the presidential runoff.  The future of the country is in your hands. YOU, the Liberian people, have the two most powerful tools in this electoral process:  your voice and your vote.  Make them count.
