Korkoyah promises to complete clean-up of FRR before runoff

Embattled National Elections Commission or NEC Chairman, Cllr. Jerome Korkoyah, has said the electoral commission will complete the clean-up of the final voter registration roll before the December 26 runoff presidential election.

Speaking on Tuesday when he appeared before the Senate, Cllr. Korkoyah said the Commission is doing all it can to be in compliance with recent ruling of the Supreme Court of Liberia.

In its recent ruling, the high court among other counts mandated the National Elections Commission to clean up the voters roll by removing multiple names of identification numbers and make sure no unregistered person be allowed to vote in the runoff.

Cllr. Korkoyah said NEC is working with its International partners and the two political parties in the runoff to remove from its database of double registrants.

Farbric News reporter covering the Senate said several concerned Liberians witnessed the Senate’s cross examination of the NEC’s Chairman.

Meanwhile, with less than seven days to the runoff presidential election, the National Elections Commission has begun the display of the Final voter Registration Roll in Lofa County.

Correspondent Mason Kollie in Voinjama City said the process begun since Monday and it’s proceeding well so far in the county.
