MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The U.S. Embassy near Monrovia says it is inspired by the Liberian Voters’ demonstration of their commitment to and faith in democracy, by voting in the October 10 2017 Elections.

The Embassy said: “No accredited Liberian, regional, or international observation group suggested that the cumulative irregularities observed
reflect systemic issues sufficient to undermine the fundamental integrity of the electoral process”.

The U.S. Embassy made this known in a statement issued Wednesday, November 15, 2017, stressing the importance of a peaceful transfer of power from a democratic elected government to another, as reflected in Liberia’s Constitution.

The Embassy has therefore, reaffirmed its confidence in the integrity of the October 10 polls in which about 1.5 million Liberians participated.

The statement quotes the U.S. Embassy as urging the National Elections Commission (NEC) to undertake corrective actions before, during, and after the Run-Off elections saying where issues were identified in the first round of voting.
