Neymote Expresses Fear Over Political Militancy

As Liberia gets closer at a crossroad ahead of the 2023 presidential and legislative elections, Naymote Partners for Democratic Development has expressed concern over the growing wave of political militancy among parties.

Naymote Partners for Democratic Development
Executive Director, Eddie D. Jarwolo believes political militancy could be unhealthy for Liberia’s growing democracy if not arrested in the soonest posible time.

Liberia is constitutionally due to conduct its third post war Presidential and Representative Elections on October 10, 2023.

The Naymote boss pointed out Liberia’s democratic gains with the conduct of the three successive presidential and legislative elections (2005, 2011, 2017), but maintained that the peace is still fragile.

Naymote Partners for Democratic Development, Executive Director, Eddie D. Jarwolo made the statement during a high Ambassadorial level meeting organized by the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission, which is UN Intergovernmental Advisory Body of both the General Assembly and the Security Council that supports peace efforts in conflict-affected countries.

Mr. Eddie D. Jarwolo through the virtual event
commended the Peacebuilding Commission, (PBC) and international partners for their support in sustaining the democratic gains but at the same time reminded them of the 2023 elections as a test of credibility and strength of the national and international institutions.

He added that the 2023 election “is also likely to further expose the extent of state fragility should the institutions fail to deliver more effectively on their mandates”.

On the other hand, Naymote’s Eddie D. Jarwolo pointed out that lack of public trust in the security sector endangers electoral process without substantial reforms.

Meanwhile, the Naymote Partners for Democratic Department Executive Director applauded NEC for its plan to transition from Manual Voter Registration to the Biometric Voter Registration system.

This, according to him, is likely to improve the quality and credibility of the process, as well as reduce instances of multiple voting, fraud, and other irregularities unlike the manual registration.
