Tipoteh….Tipoteh Claims

Dr. Togba-Nah Tipoteh, a longstanding economist and politician, has declared that the senatorial elections scheduled to be held on December 16, 2014 will not be credible.

 

He insists that the elections will not be credible because “they will not be constitutional, they will not be free, they will not be fair, they will not be democratic and they will be using money that could be used to help stop Ebola.”

According to Dr. Tipoteh, the elections will not be constitutional because they violate the right to life, the most important right in the Constitution of Liberia.

Also, Dr. Tipoteh argues that the National Elections Commission (NEC) has failed to respond to public questions about the presence of non-Liberian as Commissioners of NEC, as senatorial candidates and as voters holding voter registration cards given to them by NEC.

Dr. Tipoteh made his declaration over the weekend when he issued a public statement on the scheduled senatorial elections. The 2011 presidential candidate indicated that the elections will not be free because of people's fear of catching Ebola during campaign season.

Dr. Tipoteh informed the people and friends of Liberia that the senatorial elections will not be fair because it will not be constitutional and free, especially as the questions about the non-Liberian Commissioner, candidates and voters have not been responded to by NEC.

The opposition politician observed that the elections will not be democratic because most of the registered voters will not vote, as a way of protesting the unconstitutional and unfair elections.

Dr. Tipoteh  pointed out that the elections will be a waste of the Liberian people's money because such would be better used to help stop Ebola, especially when the government of Liberia continues to tell the world that Liberia needs much more money to stop Ebola from killing Liberian voters and non-voters.

The Liberian politician said he continues to insist upon the immediate cancellation of the elections and the postponement of the process to a suitable time after Ebola is declared ended in Liberia.
