In a statement released today by the National Chairman of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Mr.
Lafayette O. Gould on Current Electoral Process, the ANC said it support the action of the Liberty Party (LP) against the National Elections Commission (NEC) to the Supreme Court of Liberia. Below is the full text of the ANC statement:
October 31, 2017
Fellow Liberians and ANC Partisans:
Following the October 10th election results, our Standard Bearer, Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, informed the public of the Alternative National Congress’ (ANC) intention to explore challenging the integrity and subsequent validity of the recent election outcomes.
To this end, we engaged expert assistance and conducted a detailed review of our findings. Although our final findings do reveal gross and wide spread improprieties, they came after the deadline for filing complaints with the National Election Commission (NEC).
Nonetheless, we intend to catalog and release our findings to the public in an effort to help improve our electoral process and illustrate the Alternative National Congress’ commitment to democracy, transparency and better governance.
The ANC would like to also state its support of the Liberty Party’s official complaint to the National Elections Commission.
The ANC and its Standard Bearer promises to continue to be dedicated to creating change and reform in Liberia. We ask all partisans and Liberians to please continue to remain calm during this very difficult period in our democracy. We must remain steadfast and peaceful in the preservation of the peace and stability of our great nation.
Thank you for your continued support.
God bless you. And God bless Liberia!
Lafayette O. Gould
National Party Chairman
The Alternative National Congress
