(LINA) –The Supreme Court of Liberia has mandated the National Election Commission (NEC) to do an election re-run in three polling places in District #7, Lower Bong County within 60 days.

In its ruling over the weekend, the Court mandated NEC to conduct the re-run in Sanoyea Market, Yarbayeh Public School and Bletenda Palava Hut, respectively. The Court’s decision was prompted by a complaint filed by Henrique Flomo Tokpa, second place winner in the December 20, 2014 special senatorial election on grounds that there were procedural irregularities leading to his defeat by Senator Jewel Howard-Taylor.

Following adjustments from by the Supreme Court, the election results showed Howard-Taylor amassing 13,255 votes while Tokpa had 11,672 votes. In his complaint to the local office of the NEC headed by Magistrate Joseph Jallah, Tokpa said there were unidentified voters allowed to vote, over statement of total votes cast in the area and election boxes were left open beyond the prescribed period.

Not accepting the ruling of both Jallah and the NEC, the case was taken to the Supreme Court which, following thorough examination, ruled for a re-run of election at the three protested areas based on facts discovered in Tokpa’s complaint.
