ECC Condemns Yehkeh

The Elections Coordinating Committee (ECC) has condemned the posting of a campaign banner by Montserrado District Six Representative Yekeh Kolubah displaying the picture of Presidential aspirant Joseph Boakai at the Capitol Building on February 7, 2023, while at the same time declaring the opening of campaign. Due to the critical nature of the 2023 elections, ECC discourages such acts of violations or forms of mockery of the Liberia democratic process to maintain the sanity of our electoral system.
The ECC also continues to receive reports from its county and district monitors that aspirants from the Unity Party (UP), Alternative National Congress (ANC), and People’s Unification Party (PUP) are involved in the printing and posting of flyers, banners, or stickers which depict the act of pre-campaigning under the NEC regulations.
ECC believes that these instances of violation are happening due to the NEC’s failure to enforce its regulations during previous ones. These trends in the bridge of the Campaign Regulations are worrisome as this may set the basis for violations of other regulations of the 2023 electoral legal framework.
ECC, therefore, calls on the NEC to levy the stipulated fines and penalties outlined in the regulations for violations of any component of the electoral legal framework to preserve the integrity of the process. In addition, all parties and aspirants are encouraged to desist from every form of pre-campaign activity as a respect for the rule of law guarding these elections.
