(elbcradio.com/Liberia/ Saturday, Dec. 29, 2014)- The National Elections Commission(NEC) has released final results of the Special Senatorial Election.

In a nation-wide address, NEC Chairman, Cllr. Jerome Korkoyah, announced the final results Saturday, December 27, 2014 in Monrovia.

 Cllr. Korkoyah said:”By virtue of the power vested in me as Chairman of the National Elections Commission, I hereby declare the following candidates winners of the Special Senatorial Election.”

 “The results covering all the 15 Sub-Political Divisions of Liberia were duly endorsed by the Board of Commissioners of the Commission,” the NEC Chairman said.

The fifteen (15) new senators-elect are to fill the vacant seats created because of the expiration of the nine- year tenure of 15 senators in the Upper House of the National Legislature.
