NEC DEBUNKS REPORT OF COMMISSION’S VEHICLE BEING USED TO CAMPAIGN

44

Following a recent social media post in which an individual was purportedly pictured using a vehicle of the National Elections Commission of Liberia (NEC) to distribute campaign posters of the ruling CDC, the NEC has clarified that an internal review showed that no person in the depicted photo is associated with the commission. The Commission said it takes this matter seriously and that in consonance with its value of neutrality encouraged the public to provide any information that may substantiate that an employee of the Commission is associated with the photo depicted. The NEC said in a release Sunday that an independent fact checking entity – ILAB has also fact-checked the report and found it to be false.

In a recent viral post, one of the pickup vehicles believed to be owned by the NEC, parked on a public street, is next to what appears to be a person up on a ladder either mounting or taking down something that appears to a poster. The person behind the social media post claimed that the NEC vehicle was being used to spread campaign posters of the CDC presidential candidate. Source: LINA
