National Elections Commission or NEC officials are asking the Police to investigate an email FrontPage Africa attributed to the Electoral Commission.
FrontPage Africa-online says it has in its possession a communication in the form of an email sent to NEC’s Chairman, Cllr. Jerome Korkoya, on July 28, 2017 suggesting a staff had notified elections chief of some suspicious activity involving the voters’ roll.
Besides the allegation of tampering with the Voter Roll currently before the Supreme Court of Liberia, the email also points to fingerprint inaccuracies.
According to FrontPage Africa-online, Chairman Korkoya urged his staff to avoid speaking to the media or anyone concerning voter’s fingerprint inaccuracy.
NEC official spokesman, Henry Flomo said the email in circulation did not come from the Commission and the contents are false and only designed to cause confusion in Liberia.
Mr. Flomo said the email in question email@example.com does not exist in the Commission’s server.
He further alleged that the publication by Frontpage is mere plot intended to dispute the reputation and credibility of the electoral process.
“To tell you how fake this Email is, July 28, 2017 was on a Friday, and not Wednesday as is being purported by the www.frontpageafricaonline.com,” Flomo said
He urged the police to immediately investigate such grave allegation made against commission in order to clear public doubt.
