The LFA Elections Committee has qualified 19 candidates and put hold on five, requesting for further explanations to get ready for the March 22 elections in Grand Bassa County.
The committee said the qualified candidates for positions in the LFA Executive Committee are Lemuel B. Sharman, Allain Krayee, Samuel Y. Karn, Ansu V. S. Dulleh, Adolphus G. Harmon, Matthew Smith and Samuel Ashley.
Others are Rochell G. D. Woodson, Wilmot Smith, Yanqueh S. Borsay, Urias Glaybo, Mustapha Raji, D. Sheba Browne, Wallace G. Weiah, and Ciata A. Bishop.
The committee said Madam Ciata A. Bishop will serve as the female representative to the Executive Committee while the other nine candidates will go through the voting process.
Meanwhile the committee at its press conference yesterday placed a hold on the following candidates: Cyrus N. Wright, D. Maxwell S. Kemayah, and Korpo Beatrice Kpoto, for what it said, “Inconsistencies that need clarification.”
Also placed on hold are candidates Adolph Lawrence and Alfred Sayon due to double nominations by the Gardnersville FC, and said the clubs and the candidates will meet the committee to sort things out at the conference in the period of eight days.
Chairman Malcolm Joseph assured all applicants of free, fair and transparent elections.
However, Aliou Bah was disqualified for what it termed as “constitution stigma to participate for this year elections.”
