Officials in Liberia are raising fears that some ballot boxes making their way to rural parts of the country may not get to some parts of the country by voting day Tuesday. A senior security official confirmed to FrontPageAfrica Saturday that a back line of traffic in the capital has left cars stranded for several hours. The opposition Alternative National Congress held its rally Saturday at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium while the ruling Unity Party also held a closing rally at its headquarters in Congo Town. Earlier in the day supporters of the ANC braved massive rains to storm the ATS in its launch in the nation’s capitol.
Prior to Saturday, the National Elections Commission urged the ruling party to reconsider having its rally on the same day as the ANC after the ANC launched a complaint, telling NEC that the ruling party was raining on its parade.
ANC accused UP of exerting undue influence on the electoral process to deny other parties the right to freely associate and to get their message out.
