Statement by Cllr. Jerome G. Korkoya

Chairman, National Elections Commission (NEC)

On the Announcement of Progressive Results of the

July 31, 2018 Senatorial By-elections in

Montserrado and Bong Counties

NEC Conference Hall, 9thStreet, Sinkor




Ladies and gentlemen of the press, you are welcome to this second day of announcement of results for the Senatorial By-elections in Bong and Montserrado Counties. In today’s press briefing, we will announce 502 of 502 or 100% of polling places in Bong County and 947 of 1,790 or 52.91% of polling places in Montserrado County. Today’s announcement includes the final results from Bong County.

We had planned to announce results from all polling places in the two counties today but the change of venue from the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex to our Conference Hall for the tallying of votes in Montserrado County has impacted our ability to do so. At the S.K.D Sports Complex, we have space to erect eleven work stations whereas our conference Hall can accommodate a maximum of six work stations. Be that as it may, we are hopeful of announcing final results from Montserado County on tomorrow, August 3, 2018.

Complaint/Dispute Resolution

As stated yesterday, the NEC has not received any complaint on the conduct of the Senatorial By-elections or the tally process. With that said, we will now proceed to announce the second day results of the Senatorial By-elections.

Reading of Results and Declaration of Winner in Bong County

Based on the results just read and in keeping with Section 2.9(g) of the New Elections Laws of Liberia, I, on behalf of the Board of Commissioners of the National Elections Commission do hereby declare Dr. Henrique Flomo Tokpa as the winner of the July 31, 2018 Senatorial By-election in Bong County.
