LEON Pre Election Press Statement for Monterrado Bi-Election

This statement is based on the observations of the LEON five-member core team, the 17 Long Term Observers, one in each electoral district, who have been working since June 5, and three social media monitors. LEON will be observing the by-election with 390 observers around the county.  


LEON is pleased that this important election is proceeding and calls upon the government of Liberia to make sure that funds are available to pay polling staff. The delay in the elections, outside the constitutionally permitted timeframe, could have been avoided if the NEC annual budget contained contingency for by-elections.
