As Election Fierceness Complains Overwhelm NEC Office, Liberians Queue For Midterm Senatorial Election

Thousands of Liberians have been queued out early this morning to elect their respective senators of their choice after the scheduled date in October was postponed due to the outbreak of the deadly Ebola which has taken thousands of lives.

Among the 139 candidates vying for 15 seats are former football star George Weah and Robert Sirleaf, the son of Liberia's president both have been in the center of election violence.

The National Elections Commission (NEC) has confirmed complains being pouring in from both the George Weah’s Congress Democratic Change (CDC) and Independent candidate, Robert A. Sirleaf son of President Sirleaf about election violence against their respective campaign committees.

Observers believed today’s polling centers around the country will see a drastic reduction of voters due to the ongoing spreading of this deadly Ebola virus.

Ebola has infected about 19,000 people in West Africa, killing more than 7,300 – with about 3,340 deaths in Liberia.
