Majority of the BOC Affirms Ruling for a Rerun of the Dist. 15 By-election, But Respondent announced An Appeal to the Supreme Court

Five of the Seven Member Board of Commissioners of the Nation Elections Commission have affirmed the ruling of the NEC Hearing Chamber to rerun 20 of the 94 polling places in District #15, Montserrado County.

The Board ruled Wednesday August 22, 2019, following Tuesday’s hearings into appeal filed by the team of candidate Abu Kamara of the CDC.

The Chairman of the Board, Cllr. Jerome Korkoya, dissented the decision of his colleagues thus, did not sign the document. His Co-chair, Cllr. Sarah Toe, was the only absentee. The rest signed the ruling.

Comissioner Boakai Dukuly read the decision of the Board.

Meanwhile, receiving the ruling on behalf of the respondent, Atty. Kunkunyon Wleh Teh, took exception to the ruling and announced that they will appeal to the Supreme Court of Liberia in its October sitting.

On August 14, 2019 the Head of the NEC independent Hearing Office, Cllr. Mauna Ville, after a weeklong hearing that produced 19 witnesses in total (14 from the petitioners and 5 from respondent NEC), ruled in favor of a rerun in 20 polling places in the District. The respondent challenged the ruling and filed an appeal to the Board.

Attached is the Ruling of the BOC.
