WONGOSOL WANTS PEACEFUL RUN-OFF ELECTION

Date:

MONROVIA – The Women NGOs Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL) wants the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and the opposition Unity Party (UP) to ensure peaceful run-off elections on Tuesday, November 14, 2023.

According to the Executive Director of WONGOSOL Esther Davis Yango, the organization extends its appreciation to all Liberians, most especially the women of Liberia for exercising their constitutional and civic duties by turning out to vote on October 10, 2023.

Madam Yango made the statement over the weekend as Liberians are preparing to go to the poll on Tuesday for run-off election for the presidency.

She stressed that WONGOSOL also commends the National Elections Commission and the Liberia Joint Security for a peaceful conduct of the October 10, 2023, General and Presidential Election.

She indicated that as required by the constitution of Liberia, no political party was able to secure the 50% plus 1 vote to be declared a winner, which resulted to the National Elections Commission declaring a run-off election scheduled for Tuesday, 14th November 2023.

“We acknowledge all our national and international partners and observers for the role they played in ensuring the elections was peaceful and credible,” Madam Yango added.

“We hereby call on the both parties in the run-off, the governing Coalition for Democratic Change(CDC)and the Opposition Unity Party(UP) to ensure that they adhere to the Farmington Declaration, committing to a violence-free election,” she asserted.

According to her, WONGOSOL acknowledged the efforts of the joint security on October 10, 2023 and call on them to remain impartial and independent in performing your duties during the run-off.

“To the National Elections Commission, our country Liberia heavily relies on your transparency and call on you to employ all credible, independent and accountable processes to avoid any form of violence or instability,” Madam Yango maintained.

“We call on NEC to put in place measures to avoid the minor irregularities observed and reported from the Oct 10, 2023 election by national, international and parties’ monitors and observers. Some of those included: chaotic queues due to poor or no queue controllers, impersonation and poor coordination at different voting precincts,” she pointed out.

She explained that Liberians, most especially the young people should conduct yourselves in an orderly manner and not allowing yourselves to be influenced by politicians to carryon violence.

“We are about to make history and the world is watching to see how we conduct ourselves on November 14, and afterwards” she said.

” Thus, as we enthusiastically await the November 14, 2023, Run-off Election, we are calling on all Liberians most especially the women, to turnout in their mass to vote as they did on October 10, 2023″ She asserted.

Madam Yango noted that the results of these elections determine the fate of Mama Liberia for the next six years and Liberia is all we have therefore let us have a peaceful run-off election.
