Monrovia- Polls in the on-going voting process, the 2020 special senatorial election and the national referendum has ended . Since Tuesday morning, the voting process started with some low attendance at some precincts centers.

There are 118 candidatesof which 10 candidates are fro Montserrado. It is unknown who will win, but Coalition for Democratic Change Thomas Fallah, current representative, District 5 is contesting against incumbent senator Abraham Darius Dillon on July 29, 2019, was elected after the death of Senator Geraldine Doe Sheriff.

The outcome of the elections will serve as an important scale of the current regime of President George Weah and his Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) as he approaches the halfway point in his first six-year term in office.

Equally, it is important for the opposition, which recently unified under the umbrella of the Collaborating Political Parties coalition (CPP), indicating the level of its preparedness to provide a credible alternative to the CDC in the 2023 presidential vote.

The most high-stake seat in Tuesday’s polls is Montserrado County, which includes the capital, Monrovia, and contains about a third of Liberia’s registered voters.
