Joint Security Cautions Against Pre-Victory Celebration
The Joint Security says it has come to its attention that the two political parties involved in Tuesday, November 14, 2023 presidential run-off election have begun preparing their partisans and supporters for pre-victory celebrations on Friday, November 17, 2023.
In a release issued Thursday, November 16, 2023, the joint security said, “As cautioned earlier, before the run-off the Joint Security of Liberia is reinforcing its mandate that there will be no such pre-victory celebrations by any political party before the National Elections Commission (NEC) shall have announced the final results and declared the winner of the presidential run-off election.”
The joint security called on the leaderships of the two political parties to exercise control over their partisans and supporters, as well as demonstrate a high degree of political maturity and sensitivity during this crucial time in the country’s democratic sojourn to preserve the cherished peace and tranquility.
“The joint security will continue to monitor the situation, including social media platforms, and will hold accountable under the laws of Liberia anyone who incites chaos that leads to violence.
“Liberians and all residing within the borders of Liberia are assured of an unbridled security and asked to go about their normal activities,” the joint security release said.
