No Rerun: Supreme Court Cites Insufficient Evidence, Consequences


Monrovia – The Supreme Court of Liberia says it cannot and should not be expected to rule for a rerun of the entire October 10 elections, taking into consideration insufficient evidence to prove wide spread fraud and the consequence such decision could have on the country.

Reading the opinion on behalf of the Bench, Associate Justice Philip A. Z. Banks, III, said though it was proven by the Appellants (Liberty and Unity Party), the evidence did not have the magnitude to prove that such fraud and irregularities were wide spread.

He said, the Supreme Court cannot speculate that since it was proven that fraud and irregularities occurred at some polling places, it occurred nation wide.
