The National Elections Commission (NEC) Liberia says it has not announced any winners from the Tuesday October 10 elections. However, the commission will begin the announcement of provisional results today at its MEDIA CENTER In Monrovia at 5pm.
NEC reiterates that it has not announced any results nor has it declared any winners from the Tuesday elections.
NEC also warns against individuals declaring verdict on the elections, “only the commission has the legal right to announce the results”.
Section 2.9 (g) of the new elections law of 1986, under power and duties, states: ……conduct all elections for elective public offices including the chieftaincy election and all referenda and declare the winner results thereof.
It could be recalled that news went viral that one of Liberia’s top contender had been declared winner of the presidential election.
