The Election Observation Mission of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS has duly advised all candidates who contested in both the Presidential and National assembly elections to accept results in good faith. The Board, who specialized in monitoring elections in all African states, have considered the on-going election results to be fair enough so far and advice candidates not to feel bad about the results.
The report was available to journalist on Monday by the mission and it was signed by its Head, Mrs. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. The report read:
“In the spirit of the commitment made in the peace accord of February 13, 2019, the mission urges the candidates to accept the verdict of the polls in good faith, and in case of complaints, to seek redress by legal means solely
The ECOWAS Observation Mission considers the electoral process largely peaceful and transparent as voters were able to cast their votes freely and also commends the general public and the voters for their patience and determination to exercise their civic responsibility. The mission appeals to party leaders, candidates, their supporters and the press, to show tolerance and restraint leading up to, and after, the announcement of the results.”
The report said the advice was one of the preliminary conclusions it reached pending the collation and declaration of final results by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
