Ahead of Official Declaration: Weeks Congratulates Dillon

Ahead of Official Declaration: Weeks Congratulates Dillon

Ahead of official declaration of the winner of the just conducted Montserrado County Senatorial by-election, one of the major contenders in the race, Dr. Kimmie Weeks, has congratulated Mr. Abraham Darius Dillon alias, “ADD” for his reported victory.

The ensuing elections are triggered by Article 37 of the 1986 Liberian Constitution, which is regarded as the organic law of the country.

Article 37 of the Liberian Constitution states that: “In the event of a vacancy in the Legislature caused by death, resignation, expulsion or otherwise, the presiding officer shall within 30 days notify the Elections Commission thereof. The Elections Commission shall not later than 90 days thereafter cause a by-election to be held; provided that where such vacancy occurs within 90 days prior to the holding of general elections, the filling of the vacancy shall await the holding of such general elections.”

In accordance with this article, a vacancy was created at the Upper House of the Liberia Legislature (Senate) following the death of Senator Geradine Doe-Sheriff, who died from cancer at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana in April of this year.

And with the National Elections Commission-the body that is clothed with the statutory mandate to conduct elections across the country for all elected positions for public offices yet to officially declare anyone as winner of the race, Weeks took to his facebook page on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 to congratulate the Liberty Party (LP) candidate.

“Let me extend my congratulations to my brother Abe Darius Dillon for his victory. As I said many times, a victory for one of us is a victory for all of us. Congratulations,” posted Weeks.

“Let me take this opportunity to thank my family, friends, campaign team members, supporters and volunteers for all of the time, energy and sacrifice put into this Senatorial race. This was truly the birth of a political movement that is now here to stay. I again congratulate,” he added.

Dillon, who was also supported by the other three collaborating political parties-the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Unity Party (UP) and All Liberian Party (ALP), is in the lead with unofficial vote counts.

Meanwhile, the NEC has begun the tallying of results from various polling centers yesterday and is expected to announce some provisional results on today, Wednesday, July 31.

“We are tallying the results today, and if the numbers tallied are encouraging, then we will begin the announcement of results today. But from the look of things, it will be tomorrow that provisional results will actually be announced,” said an official of NEC in a phone conversation.

    Howdy, I believe your blog could be having web browser compatibility issues.
    Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however,
    if opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from
    that, great blog!
