Liberia: Cummings Invites International Experts to Examine Fraud

  The integrity of the October 10 elections is being questioned here and there.

“So, after much consultation and initial review of substantive evidence, I find it my duty and responsibility as a Liberian that is dedicated to creating change and reform, to explore challenging the purported outcome of the recent election." 

“To this end, we have engaged expert assistance to conduct detailed review of our findings with a view to verify and pursue every available avenue, legal and otherwise, to ensure a fair, transparent and valid election result.”

The standard bearer of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Alexander B. Cummings has joined Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine of the Liberty Party, Benoni Urey of the All Liberian Party in challenging the October 10 results. 

At a press conference at the ANC headquarters in Monrovia on Tuesday, Cummings said while he is thankful for the peaceful process and impressive turnout, he’s very concerned “about the integrity and subsequent validity of the recent election outcomes."

"I am also disturbed by the reportedly thousands of Liberians that were denied their constitutional right to vote due to influences and negligence in the administration of the process.” 

Like Cllr. Brumskine, Alexander Cummings also named stolen ballot boxes, mix-matched tally sheets, centers moved without notice to voters, intimidation of poll watchers and unprecedented number of invalid votes and turned away voters as evidence that the election process lacked the capacity, preparedness and consistent application of rules to ensure that votes of Liberians were protected with a guarantee of the results that will reflect the true will of Liberians. 

“During my campaign, I outlined reasons why we are where we are as a country, consistently noting that if we keep doing the same things, we will not get different results. Today, I find that truer than ever. 

“The acceptance of an incompetent, inefficient and rigged electoral process is an illustration of that expression. By accepting current election results without challenge amid the numerous and widespread improprieties, we the Liberian people, would again be accepting the same behaviors and tolerating the same injustices.” 

He cautioned that Liberia will never change Liberians continues to tolerate mediocrity and corruption in any facet of the electoral process. 

“So, after much consultation and initial review of substantive evidence, I find it my duty and responsibility as a Liberian that is dedicated to creating change and reform, to explore challenging the purported outcome of the recent election."

"To this end, we have engaged expert assistance to conduct detailed review of our findings with a view to verify and pursue every available avenue, legal and otherwise, to ensure a fair, transparent and valid election result.” 

He, however, said the ANC would accept the outcome of the election as the will of the people if it was fair and competently conducted.
