House Speaker Dr. Bhofal Chambers has extended his warmest congratulations to President George M. Weah describing him as an exemplary leader who showed unwavering patriotism, and dedicated service to the people of Liberia.
In a statement issued Monday, November 20, just days after President Weah conceded defeat to former Vice President Joseph Boakai following the November 14 presidential runoff, Dr. Chambers further praised Mr. Weah for his instrumental role in maintaining and sustaining peace in the nation, something he described as Weah’s testament to his commitment to the well-being of the Liberian people.
Speaker Chambers also highlighted the importance of strong and visionary leadership, particularly in navigating the challenges faced by a nation in its pursuit of progress and prosperity.
Meanwhile, Speaker Chambers has also extended his congratulations to President-Elect Ambassador Joseph N. Boakai for his successful outcome in the just-ended Presidential Runoff Elections held on November 14, 2023.
He commended the resilience of the Liberian people and their commitment to the democratic process, which has resulted in a peaceful transition of power.
The House of Representatives 54th Legislature, under the leadership of Speaker Chambers, also expresses gratitude to both local and international partners for their invaluable support throughout the electoral process. Their collaboration has played a pivotal role in ensuring the success and credibility of the elections. This election is particularly noteworthy as it marks the first postwar elections sponsored by the Liberian Government without the presence of international peacekeepers.
Special acknowledgment was extended to the Liberian Security apparatus for their outstanding work in maintaining a secure environment during the elections. The House recognizes the professionalism and dedication of the security forces, whose efforts have contributed significantly to the overall success of the electoral process.
As Liberia embraces a new era under the leadership of President-Elect Ambassador Joseph N. Boakai, Speaker Chambers affirms the commitment of the House of Representatives to work collaboratively with the Executive Branch for the betterment of the Liberian people.
