Despite a Senate vote announcing the postponement of the December 16, 2014 special Senatorial elections, the National Elections Commission (NEC) announced the arrival of Ballot Papers Saturday for the said election on.
Ballot papers for the election arrived Friday aboard a DHL Cargo Flight at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) and were received on arrival at the RIA by the Chairman and members of the Board of Commissioners of the National Elections Commission. The ballots were printed by the Ghana based Buck Press.
The NEC said it will on Monday officially launch the Civic and Voter Education Program for the Special Senatorial Election. It said the program will be launched at the headquarters of the Commission in Monrovia.
The launching ceremony will be followed by a major Press Conference to announce the key date for the start of political campaign. The Commission recently certified 139 candidates to contest the Special Senatorial Election.
