NEC announces funding for BVR staff
The National Elections Commission (NEC), says it has received funding from the Government of Liberia for the payment of Temporary Biometric Voter Registration Staff that are currently serving citizens of Liberia at the 1,065 Registration Centers in Bomi, Gbarpolu, Grand Bassa, Grand Cape Mount, Margibi and Montserrado Counties.
The Commission informs the Temporary Registration Workers that their contracts are being sent to the field for signing in preparation for payment which date will be communicated in line with the contractual agreement.
Meanwhile, the Commission said it has commenced the payment of meal allowance to Registration Staff and janitorial service fees to facility owners which will gradually be done throughout the six phase-one counties of the voter registration exercise.
The Commission assured electoral staff and facility owners that all is being done to address their concerns while thanking them for their contribution to promoting democracy in Liberia.
The Commission extends its gratitude to the staff for their tireless efforts and progress since the Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) exercise started on 20 March 2023.
