The National Youth Movement for Transparent Elections has released a report evaluating the first 270 days of President George Weah’s government, based on promises made to Liberians during and after the 2017 elections.
The National Elections Commission or NEC has officially announced the results of the November 20 senatorial and representative byelections for Sinoe and Montserrado’s thirteenth district, respectively.
Unofficial provisional results from Tuesday’s representative by-election in Montserrado’s 13th district have placed independent candidate Edward Flomo in the lead.
Is it not time that President Weah calls on his partisans to tone down the violent rhetoric and the militarist imagery?
The by-election for representative of Montserrado’s thirteenth district appears to have been conducted smoothly, amid heavy security.
Like him or not, President George M. Weah will be credited for offering youth the privilege to assemble at the table of governance with the golden opportunity to provide their insights in plotting a smooth trajectory for Liberia.
The Liberia National Police has refuted reports that one person died on Saturday, November 17 as a result of violence that ensued between supporters of some political parties contesting Montserrado’s 13th district representative by-election.
On January 22, Liberia experienced its first handover of power from one elected leader to another in 73 years. Pres. George Weah’s inauguration followed a historic election that saw a loser in a presidential race accept the results and concede defeat to the winner for the first time in many years.
