Even if the fee is a registration fee and not a voting fee?
The funds will only be used to help facilitate creating new registration and polling stations at the Liberian Embassy in the US. If the NEC does not have the funds and the citizens requiring the services are able to raise the funds, to assist the NEC, I think they should be allowed.
These are strange times, Liberians have to come up with new and creative ways to get the things they need done to help move the country and the people forward. For years we claim, everyone is waiting for the government to do everything, we are stepping forward and saying that we are ready and willing to help the government accomplish this important task.
We are the people, and we should not let those with limited vision use the constitution to block the people progress.
We are members of the global village, it is a result of our, inefficient, ineffective, dictorial governments, and their wars that disburse us around the world, now let them accommodate us. The future calls for us to dictate to our government what we want and not the other way around.
We have that right. The NEC can make it possible, if that is what the people want. The rest is just a matter of logistics, especially if the people are willing to pay for the service by raising funds to cover the cost, and the International Community is willing to help us "PLAY FAIR" by monitoring and reporting on the process.
