Stay Order on December 8 Elections Lifted


Campaign and other electoral activities for the upcoming midterm senatorial elections can now go on after the Supreme Court of Liberia on Tuesday, November 17, lifted the stay order placed on the December 8 Elections.

The stay order was placed on the activities was a result of a complaint filed by Mulbah S. Jackollie, a Margibi senatorial aspirant against the NEC for allegedly denying his candidacy.

But aspirant Jackollie is said to have dropped his case with the National Elections Commission to allow the election activities to go on.

Declaration of the opening of the campaign that was scheduled for Saturday, October 10, was canceled due to the legal action that was before the Supreme Court.

The NEC is expected to hold a press conference later today relative to the lifting of the stay order by the Supreme Court.
