WASHINGTON, DC––Two leading members of the US Senate and three members of Congress have today reached a consensus to focus on the election and post-election violence in developing countries, especially nations in sub-Sahara Africa.
The idea emerged from a top member of Congress with vast interest in developments shaping Africa, especially the victimization of innocent and poor people at the hands and by the actions of politicians.
The informal group of US lawmakers says election and post-election violence will be absolutely unacceptable in Liberia and Kenya as well as in a number of other African nations.
As Liberians return to the poll on November 7 for a runoff presidential ballot, a spokesperson for the informal group of lawmakers say leaders of political institutions and parties, as well as their principal lieutenants in Liberia, will be held fully accountable under international laws in the instance violence occurs during and immediately after the upcoming presidential runoff election.
