Monrovia, Oct, 29 (LINA) – Grand Cape Mount County Senator-elect, Victor Varney Watson, has frowned on the delay in certificating him as winner of the Grand Cape Mount County Senatorial By-election.

It has been three weeks now since the National Elections Commission (NEC) announced the official results of the October 5, 2019 Senatorial By-election declaring Peoples’ Unification Party (PUP) candidate Watson as winner of the polls.

However, due to a protest filed by the United People’s Party’s candidate Sando Wayne, the Senator-elect is yet to be certificated as winner of the by-election.

Speaking over the weekend in the county, Senator-elect Watson expressed displeasure at the delay in adjudicating the protest filed by one of his political opponents, Sando Wayne.

The Grand Cape Mount County Senator-elect said only one person wins an election, noting that even though some candidates cannot concede defeat, the decision of the people is final.

According to the Senator-elect, “the lingering delay is definitely denying the people’s mandate; their voices and right to legitimate representation.”

« The people of Grand Cape Mount County voted; don’t bother delaying it, it won’t change their minds and the result, » the Watson emphasized.

« The people voted overwhelmingly and you lost; we won. Get over it! Let’s work together for the good of our county, » he added.

The PUP partisan pointed out that political gimmicks only affect the people in that they will continue to be underrepresented at the National Legislature.

Meanwhile, the senator-elect is calling on the citizens of Grand Cape Mount County, especially his supporters, to remain calm, assuring that the decision they made during the October 5 polls will be upheld.

He also called on the NEC to speedily adjudicate the complaint filed by the United People’s Party candidate Sando Wayne to ensure a logical conclusion of the matter.
