177

The National Elections Commission (NEC) on Friday certificated two new political parties in Liberia: Democratic National Allegiance (DNA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia (EFFL).

   Presenting the certificate to the Executive Committee Chairperson of the EFFL, NEC boss, Davidetta Browne Lansanah, said the certification follows months after the group submitted a letter of intent to be a fully registered political party in Liberia.

   The Chairperson reminded all Liberians that election is everybody’s business, and it is therefore binding on all Liberians to ensure peaceful election at all times. The NEC boss said all Liberians must commit themselves to the rule of law as the surest way to sustain peace and democracy in Liberia.

   Earlier on Friday, the Co-chairperson of NEC, Cllr. P. Teplah Reeves, performing the certification ceremony of the Democratic National Allegiance (DNA) challenged the Executive Committee to always use the 1986 Constitution and the New Elections Law to guide them in their political activities throughout the country.

   The NEC Co-Chairperson informed the gathering that the certification exercise follows a thorough and in-depth process, showing that the DNA has met the minimum requirements set forth for the establishment of a political party.

   Responding, both Executive Committee Chairpersons, Sumo Nyinulo of the Democratic National Allegiance (DNA) and Emmanuel Gonquoi of the Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia (EFFL), promised to always use the 1986 Constitution and the New Elections Law to champion real and true democracy in Liberia for all Liberians.
