Updated: Feb 23

The leadership of LSA has invited Eddie Jarwolo to participate and speak at the celebration of Liberia's 176th Independence Day in Stockholm, Sweden. Mr. Jarwolo has been invited to address important national issues in Liberia, particularly regarding presidential and legislative elections for Liberians in Sweden, and the roles of his institutions, primarily concerning political accountability.

Mr. Eddie Jarwolo

Eddie is the Executive Director of Naymote Partners for Democratic Development in the Republic of Liberia. The institution was founded in 2001 to promote the principles of good democratic governance, the rule of law, political accountability, etc.

During his stay in Sweden, Eddie will deliver the keynote address at the LSA Independence Day Ball Event on Saturday, July 22nd. It is planned that he will speak about the importance of promoting democracy and the rule of law for national development, peace, and security in Liberia. He will also share his institution's (Naymote) work in promoting political accountability, preparations for and perspectives on the 2023 presidential and legislative elections, as well as the role of diaspora Liberians in reducing election violence and promoting peace.

Other highlights of the upcoming event will include live performances by some of the most popular Liberian music artists, (pictured from left to right) Teddyride, Stunna, Kobazzie, and Slim Nick."
