On Saturday, January 18, 2020, the Election Coordination Committee ( EEC) a consortium of over twenty-five Liberian Civil Society Organizations, held a day-long interactive forum with a cross-section of Nimbaians in Gompa City. The forum dubbed, Legislative Engagement on Electoral Reform, featured me as the Legislator available to provide a Legislative perspective of the on-going Reform in our Electoral sector. Following the presentation by the Coordinator of EEC, Mr. Oscar Bloh, in which he outlined the various areas in our laws and constitution that are being considered for amendment, I expressed my support for the efforts being mounted to make such amendments. Some of the key provisions of the Electoral Law being considered for amendment include Chapter 2, subsection 2.1; 2.2; 2.4, relating to the appointment of Commissioners; the tenure and Quorum of the National Elections Commission. Also up for amendment are Chapter 3 relating to Voting Voters Registration and Voter roll; Chapter 4 on Nomination of Candidates, etc. Provisions of the constitution
