(March 17, 2021) Liberia’s premier democracy advancement institution, Naymote Partners for Democratic Development has strongly condemned the arson attacks (petrol bombs) on the National Elections Commission (NEC) and home of Associate Justice Joseph Nagbe by unknown men.
The institution is calling on all political leaders and Liberians to be conflict sensitive, respect the rule of law to promote peace and prevent violence. The recent wave of petrol bomb throwing is dangerous and worrisome especially in a post conflict society and has the propensity to undermine the democratic process, peace, and stability and the gain the country has made over the years.
The institution is at the same time imploring the National Elections Commission (NEC) and the Supreme Court of Liberia to maintain independence, be impartial and conflict sensitive in dealing with electoral matters as otherwise could undermine the integrity of the democratic processes.
