The National Patriotic Party (NPP) has denounced all forms of violence across Liberia and condemning unequivocally the district 15 violence, and also called on the Government functionaries to secure the peace and to launch an immediate investigation into the current wave of electoral violence and bring perpetrators to justice so as to set the example that violence has no place in this Nation.
In a press statement issued over the weekend, the NPP’s Officials and members of its National Executive Committee made specific reference to the most recent violence perpetrated in Electoral District 15, Montserrado County on Saturday, August 17, 2019.
Signed by its Acting Chairman John D. Gray, the NPP in its release reminded Liberians that electoral violence is now a serious Human Rights violation, punishable by the International Criminal Court. And urged on all Liberians to take steps to prevent the current wave of violence and restore sanity to the Nation.
The party therefore appeal to all Liberians to stop the violence, as it has the potential to reverse Liberia’s earned democracy and scare investors in and out of the country.
