The Liberia Elections Observation Network (LEON) is a platform of four Liberian Civil Society Organizations: The Catholic Justice and Peace Commission (JPC), Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP), Federation of Liberia Youth (FLY) and National Union of Organizations for the Disabled (NUOD).
LEON commenced activities in June 2017 with funding from the Swedish Cooperation and technical assistance from the Carter Center. LEON observed the general elections in 2017 and five by elections through 2018 to date. LEON has been advocating issues of electoral and constitutional reform, has been monitoring the National Legislature since July 2019, and has conducted six nationwide surveys.
LEON has the overall goal to meaningfully contribute to the democratization process in Liberia by providing an avenue for civil society to participate in monitoring and observing the 2017 election process in Liberia with a focus on inclusion of marginalized groups including women, youth and persons with disabilities
