September 2011

MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) — Liberia's National Elections Commission says voters rejected all four proposed changes to the constitution in a recent referendum in the West African nation. Commission co-chairwoman Elizabeth Nelson said Wednesday that none of the four propositions got the two-thirds majority needed to pass. The commission says 600,000 people voted. The main opposition party boycotted last week's poll.

One proposition to change the date of the presidential election was rejected, meaning the poll will be held in October. Another proposition would have reduced the number of years a presidential candidate needs to have lived in Liberia, from 10 years to five. Another would have increased the retirement age of Supreme Court judges.
