The Election Laws should be the guide

As opposed to the whims and caprices of some incumbent members of the Liberian Senate, the 2014 Special Senatorial Election will go ahead as rescheduled by the National Elections Commission (NEC).  The House of Representatives earlier last week endorsed the readjusted timetable for the conduct of the Elections, with the agreement that the campaign would have commenced on Sunday, November 16, 2014 and the election conducted on December 16, 2014, but the Senate, under the influence of some of its members led by Senators John Ballot of Maryland and Jewel Howard-Taylor of Bong, turned down the possibilities of the December 16 election.
