The National Rural Women (NRW) with membership throughout Liberia has called on the National Elections Commission (NEC) and politicians involved in the October 10 election crisis to speedily resolve the issue at stake and conduct the runoff presidential election in the shortest possible time. According to the women, they want to see a peaceful transition of power from one elected president to another. She said, “We are not interested in having an interim government because there is no war in the country. Many Liberians, including the rural women have been commenting on the eventual constitutional crisis that could subsequently result in an interim government. The Elections Commission shall within ninety days conduct elections for a new President and a new Vice President.”This article, however, is subject to the Supreme Court’s interpretation.
