Eminent Women Frown On Pre-Result Celebration -Express Concern About UP Press Statement to Partisans
MONROVIA: The Eminent Women of the Women’s Situation Room (WSR) have expressed concerned about the utterances coming from the Unity Party (UP) press conference held Thursday, October 12, 2023 at their campaign headquarter, Gbangay Town, Airfield, Monrovia telling their partisans to go and celebrate under claim that their tally sheets in the party’s possession have shown that they have won a one round victory.
The concern of the WSR, a press release issued says, is that NEC has announced only 0.27% of the actual votes cast (16 of 5,890 polling places) which the women said cannot determine the winner of this Presidential and Legislative Elections.
“Therefore, to tell their partisans to go out and celebrate is premature and inconsistent with the Farmington Declaration and will be seen as provocation to other political parties who are contending, and will bring their constituents into the streets to cause confusion and violence,” the release of the Women’s Situation Room said.
The Women’s Situation Room said it is against any type of violence, and calls on all political parties including the exuberant Unity Party to cease and desist from coming out on the streets with any kind of celebration and to wait until NEC can announce the final results.
At the same time, the WSR is urging the NEC to speed up the information and announcement of the results, saying it remains committed to encourage everyone in their capacity to maintain the peace and order now, and after the final count has been announced, the release concluded.
