In preparation for Liberia’s Presidential and Legislative elections on October 10, 2023, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union (AU) have jointly sent a pre-election fact-finding mission to the country. Reportedly, the mission led by Professor Attahiru Jega and Ambassador Calixte Mabari, aims to assess Liberia’s readiness for the upcoming polls.
