PRESIDENT-designate George Manneh Weah will today, January 22, be sworn-in as the Liberia’s president and Commander-in-Chief of the Liberian Defence Forces with several leaders from across the continent of Africa and beyond are here to witness the occasion.
Weah won presidential elections last year to emerge the successor to Sirleaf beating then vice president Joseph Boakai twice in a space of three months.
In the first round of voting in October 2017, Weah came top but failed to garner the necessary votes. He went into a runoff with Boakai in December and emerged winner with over 60% of votes cast. This will be Liberia’s first democratic handover of executive power in decades.
