According to our central Liberia Correspondent the poor turnout of Liberians to go to the centers established by the National Elections Commission (NEC) as voters’ registration centers were yesterday low as there were no semblance of people queue for the process.

GNN Correspondent said centers like J. F. Clarke Kindergarten School, Dorothy Cooper Public School, Gbarnga Sunday Market, David Kuyon Sports Stadium, N.V. Massaquoi Public School among several other centers were virtually emptied as there were no sign of people making effort to register for the process.

Our Correspondent speaking to some citizens in the County said the low turnout is a result of poor publicity on the part of the National Elections Commission to adequately create awareness for the start of the process which runs from February 1, 2017 to March 7, 2017.

Similar report also came from some parts of Montserrado County where the low turnout was visible at most centers in Monrovia and its environs. The process has entered its second day today.
