 NATIONAL ELECTIONS COMMISSION OFFICIAL CVE LAUNCH FOR VOTER REGISTRATION December 21st, 2016

The National Elections Commission launched its Civic/Voter Education Campaign on Tuesday, December 20th 2016 with Civic Educators and Gender Mobilizers engaging the public at various points in Monrovia and the Nineteen Magisterial Areas in the fifteen sub-political division in the Country. The Launch parade was decorated with a Float from Broad Street to the Headquarters of the NEC where an official indoor program was held.

Speaking at the Launch NEC Chairman Cllr. Jerome Korkoya said Voter Registration is the single most expensive activity within the framework of election. The NEC Boss asserted that Voter Registration is not just the technical implementation of an activity, it is a holistic political, administrative and practical process. This is why the role of voter registration is especially important when it comes to emerging Democracy. He said the quality of the process and the product- that is the voter roll- can determine the outcome of an election and consequently the stability of democratic Institutions in a country.

Chairman Korkoya added, trust in democracy is therefore promoted when the voter registration process is open and transparent and allows for the participation of all electoral stakeholders- mainly political  parties, civil society organizations, the media, security forces, the international community and all potential voters.

Chairman Korkoya thanked the Government of Liberia for its continued support to the work of the commission. He disclosed that the Commission is equally grateful to the International Partners. He said that the European Union (EU) through UNDP has graciously accepted to support six National NGOs to work with several community-based organizations to undertake CVE initiatives across the country. On the other hand, USAID, through International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) and National Democratic Institute (NDI) has committed to providing support to thirty-one local entities including sixteen civil society organizations and fifteen women and physically challenged organizations to reach specific target groupings in their communities.

The Chairman concluded by saying ‘’the voter registration is not the people’s thing’’ but the exercise belongs to all Liberians and its success is in the hands of every citizen.

The Program was attended by representatives of Political Parties, International Partners, Civil Society Organizations, Government Officials, Women and Youth Groups, Religious and Traditional Leaders, Students, Physically Challenged, the Fourth Estate and other stakeholders.
