NEC's lapse in publishing the roll had been a major issue brought up by Liberty Party and Unity Party.

He said, the Supreme Court can not speculate that since it was proven that fraud and irregularities occurred at some polling places, it occurred Nationwide.

Justice Banks noted that the comments made by the Chairman were prejudicial to the proceeding even before the case could come before the Board.

According to the Supreme Court, the NEC Board of Commissioners were in serious error by denying the motion for recusal filed by the parties.

The Supreme Court defined fraud as a generic term, which embraces all the multifarious of human ingenuity to desire and resort to by an individual to gain an advantage over another by false suggestions or by suppression of the truth.

The parties had to prove fraud was "not just at a few isolated centres but at most if not all polling centres", Banks said, and could not do so with the evidence presented.

1 decision by the Supreme Court, dissenting judge, Justice Kabineh M. Ja'neh said it was deeply disconcerting that his colleagues had chose to ignore the glaring discrepancies and evidence of gross irregularities in electoral process leading up to and during the October polls.

The Supreme Court will this afternoon hand down its much awaited decision into the prolonged 10 October 2017 elections disputes over the results which have left much uncertainty here.

The NEC has also been ordered to conduct a full cleanup of the FRR to have it comply wit the provision of the law.

Citizens will breathe a sigh of relief at the 4-1 court ruling, which puts an end to weeks of tensions, but with no date set for the runoff and a planned mid-January transition drawing ever closer, much remains up in the air.

Meanwhile, the NEC is expected to tell Liberians when they are going to head to the polls to vote.

The ruling Unity Party and opposition Liberty Party had alleged irregularities and fraud tainted the results of the first round of voting on Oct 10 and called for a total re-run of elections.
