Statement of the NDI Pre-Election Assessment Mission to Liberia's 2017 Presidential and Legislative Elections | February 20-24, 2017
The National Democratic Institute (NDI) deployed an international delegation to Liberia from February 20 - 24, 2017. The purpose of the mission was to assess preparations for Liberia’s October 2017 elections, including the ongoing voter registration process, and to support Liberia’s efforts to conduct peaceful, credible polls. This mission is the first activity in NDI’s comprehensive international election observation. In the coming months, NDI, in partnership with the West African Election Observation Network (WAEON) and the Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), will deploy analysts and long-term observers. NDI will deploy a second pre-election observation mission during the campaign period and an international election day observation mission.
