Presidential ballot papers from the European state of Slovenia have been brought into the country, the National Elections Commission (NEC) has announced Sunday.

The ballot papers were brought in Saturday night onboard a chartered Egypt cargo aircraft, Chairman of the NEC, Cllr. Jerome Korkoya, said at a special arranged press conference.
The papers were escorted to Monrovia by the Liberia National Police that had provided maximum protection at the airport.  It is noted that in line with commitment of openness, the media was represented at the arrival, and allowed to view the offloading and movement of the ballot papers from the aircraft and out of the airport.
Chairman Korkoya said the distribution of the presidential ballot papers to all 5390 polling places throughout the country will begin next week.
He said the representative ballot papers will arrive in the country from Ghana on or before the September 28.
The NEC boss said a total of 100,000 mock ballots for each election and 1,210 tactile ballots for training purposes are already in Liberia.
“There is a five and three percent contingency included in the respective amounts in line with international best practice. 30,000 tactile ballots will also be delivered for the visually impaired,” he said.
“Election material has started to arrive in Liberia. Pre-packed polling kits arrived in Liberia on the 17 September 2017 and a second batch on 19 September 2017. Polling booths arrived on 17 September 2017. Material will start to be despatched from Monrovia on 28 September 2017.”
He also said Sample ballots papers have so far been produced for five of the counties: Grand Cape Mount, Bomi, Gbarpolu, Grand Bassa and Montserrado.
“Political parties are encouraged to collect details from the political affairs section of the National Elections Commission. Sample ballots for all other counties will be ready this week, most likely tomorrow,” Chairman Korkoya disclosed.
