MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The National Elections Commission (NEC) is now recounting votes in Electoral District #8 in Nimba County from the October 10 Presidential and Representative Elections.

The recount of votes in District #8 is taking place at the Magisterial Office of the National Elections Commission in Saclepea.

According to a release from NEC on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, the recount comes in the wake of a little difference in votes obtained by the candidate with the highest number of votes and his closest contender, which difference is less than fifty.

The Commission said this decision is in keeping with its elections regulations, backed by the Supreme Court’s ruling in the case of Kuku Dorbor versus the National Elections Commission, in which the Supreme Court said:” Whenever the difference of votes between the candidates with the most votes is fifty or less, the NEC shall conduct an automatic recount.”
