Liberia: Musa Bility Breaks Tribal Barrier, Wins Nimba District #7 Legislative Seat
Monrovia – The National Election Commission (NEC) has officially declared Musa Bility as the winner of the recently held legislative election for District #7 in Nimba County.
The race for the legislative seat was overshadowed by tribal politics and contentious claims and counterclaims. Mr. Bility, a member of the minority Mandingo Ethnic Group, based his campaign on his outstanding track record of undertaking several development projects in the district, notably the construction of a farm-to-market road connecting various towns and villages.
In contrast, his rival, the incumbent Roger S. Domah, received support from Senator Prince Johnson and the Unity Party and focused his campaign on tribal politics. Domah, who served the district for six years, will now be succeeded by Bility.
Announcing Bility as the election winner, NEC Chairperson Davidetta Browne-Lansanah revealed that Bility, representing the Collaborating Political Parties, secured 10,003 votes out of a total valid vote count of 27,897, constituting 35.86 percent.
