#LiberiaElections: ECC Challenges NEC Report
The Election Coordination Committee (ECC), in its latest scrutiny of the electoral process, has turned the spotlight on the recently released preliminary report of the National Elections Commission (NEC) that it registered 2,026,426 voters.
The ECC is the largest professional civil society platform that observes all aspects of elections in Liberia in partnership with the National Democratic Institute with funding from USAID.
Commenting on the NEC report, the ECC coordinator, Oscar Bloh, said voter apathy coupled with the slow pace at which citizens turned out to register leave “the ECC unsure that the NEC will reach its projected target of 2.5 million voters.”
On March 23, the NEC reported that it received and processed 2,026,426 voter registration forms as well as other electoral materials from 11 of the 15 counties during the voter registration process.
