Liberty Party Alarms Threatens Lawsuit on National Elections Commission

Liberty Party has announced that they are compiling an investigative evidence-back report of their discovery of fraud and irregularities observed during the election.

The party’s chairman, Benjamin Sanvee, said they have called on the National Elections Commission (NEC) not to announce any results from the elections until they (LP) have presented their findings to the NEC.

The NEC announced Wednesday that they will release the first preliminary results today at its headquarters.

But the Liberty Party says should NEC go ahead to announce the results, they will take legal action against the NEC.

“There is absolutely no excuse for hindering Liberians from exercising their democratic rights.

“We call on all LP partisans and all Liberians to remain calm and peaceful as we work to resolve these issues,” Chairman Sanvee said.

Head of the ECOWAS Observer Mission, former Ghanaian President Dr. John Dramani Mahama initially told reporters on the election day that he observed some irregularities with the process, which the NEC could have averted had they sufficiently trained polling staffs.


He, however, told reporters in a press conference on Wednesday that the counting and tallying process was done in a transparent manner.

“Thus far, given the environment before, during the polls and sorting process, Liberia is on track to achieving a credible poll,” he said.

Mahama also commended the security forces for curbing pockets of violence during the polls, he read to journalists in Monrovia as part of the mission’s preliminary report.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
