In this month’s Monthly, we cover our observation of the by-elections in Lofa County on June 28, 2022. We report on our findings and the utility of our inference on the outcome of the polls.
The regular theme of our Monthly is not overlooked though. This edition again covers the socio-economic trends in electoral districts around the country. Long Term-Observers report that road accessibility is relatively good, but road maintenance remains a key challenge in some areas. Inflation in prices of Liberian staples remain a serious economic situation with adverse impact on the purchasing power of ordinary Liberians in the districts. The absence of Liberian bank notes (lower denominations) is highlighted as an issue of concern for citizens which creates serious transactional disadvantage in many cases as much needed “change” must be let go.
