MONROVIA: Presidential Hopeful, Cllr. Tiawon Saye Gongloe, has raised serious alarm over what he calls efforts by the Liberian government to amend the National Elections Laws of Liberia aimed at abolishing the posts of electoral magistrates.
He said the plan to amend the law is designed for the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led government, headed by President George Manneh Weah, to rig the much-anticipated 2023 Presidential and Legislative elections in favor of the incumbent President and his cronies.
In a statement issues in Monrovia over the weekend, Cllr. Gongloe said “This is so because the CDC-led government intends to recruit its partisans only as electoral magistrates across the country so that they will oversee the rigging of the poll.”
The human rights lawyer therefore implored “farsighted” members of the Legislature to vote against the pending amendment of the National Elections Law of Liberia in which, he said, the government seeks to abolish the posts of electoral magistrates.
