MONROVIA, LIBERIA-US Ambassador near Monrovia, Christine Elder, and key UN officials have held talks with several religious groups in Liberia, ahead of the country’s 2017 Elections.

The newly established National Christian Council of Liberia (NCCL) is among the religious groups involved in the deliberations.

The discussions focused on a wide-range of national issues, including security, the referendum, the economy, and taking major steps to ensure a free, fair and transparent elections next year.

An NCCL release said during the meeting, the Council raised concern about the reported influx of people from neighboring countries, especially during the election period.

The release quotes NCCL Interim President, Rudolph Marsh, as stressing the importance of maintaining the peace by upholding the constitution, taking into consideration the referendum and elections.

At the same time, the release quotes NCCL as having called on the UN to carry out a massive arm search in Liberia before the conduct of the 2017 elections.
