#LiberiaElections: Youth Groups, Civil Society Pledge to Promote Violence Free Elections in Liberia

Youth wings of some leading political parties and members of civil society organisations have resolved to denounce all forms of electoral violence and promote peace and stability in Liberia before, during and after the October 2017 elections.

According to FrontPage Africa, the group made the resolution at the end of a three-day elections dispute management training for political parties youth representatives and civil society organizations in Liberia sponsored by the Peace Building Office (PBO) at the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

“We will take lessons learned from this training to provide adequate awareness at our various Political Parties and Civil Society Organization youth gatherings and local communities, and thus, use all positive means to reach the message across the youthful population of the Republic of Liberia,” the group stated.

The group also noted that it signed the agreement owing to the fact that the youth of Liberia, irrespective of their present roles, have suffered the most from the effects of conflict and violence, including lost educational, employment and economic opportunities, despite constituting to 65-70% of the population and having the highest stake in the future of the country.

In the accord, the group announced the establishment of a network of political party youth wings and civil society organizations for the purpose of exchanging information and engaging jointly to resolve elections related disputes.
