WONGOSOL calls for peaceful election

The Women NGOs Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL) has called for peaceful election in Liberia.

Executive Director Esther Davis Yango lauds all Liberians and political parties for their peaceful conduct largely throughout the electoral process.

“We are aware and concern of some incidences of electoral violence and, are closely monitoring the justice system to ensure that they effectively respond to these incidences”, Madam Yango explained.

Speaking in Monrovia Sunday, 8 October she noted that all Liberians are vigorously engaged with the electoral process and are striving to successfully carry on the civic duty by turning out Tuesday to vote in the interest of Mama Liberia.

“The conduct of peaceful, free, fair and transparent elections is a requirement for democratic alliance, sustainable peace and development in Liberia”, Madan Yango added.

She reiterated that as Liberians go to the poll to vote, they should continue to be peaceful.

“We are obligated to uphold the rule of law and conduct ourselves courteously and in a non-violent manner, including in our public discourse, from disseminating Mis-information and Dis-information that will disrupt the electoral process” she cautioned.

She pointed out that WONGOSOL also reminds all political parties of their firm commitment to promote a violence-free election, as expressed in their Farmington River Declaration, and as reiterated in their various public statements.

“We are the custodian of our peace therefore, it is our responsibility to maintain it.”

She explained that the international community is watching the country to see how Liberians conduct ourselves during this period.

WONGOSOL boss called on government through the Ministry of Justice and the Joint Security to be vigilant and do everything possible in providing security.

“It is our ardent hope that all Liberians will remain productively committed to a historic and peaceful election and that the collective will and aspirations of all Liberians will not be compromised for individual ambitions; allegiance to Liberia must remain the common denominator for sustaining peace and the pursuit of development”, Madam Yango urged.
