United States Envoy to the United Nations Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield says the US remains committed to helping the people of Liberia achieve their democratic goal.
In a brief statement issued Wednesday, November 15, following Tuesday’s Presidential runoff between incumbent President George Weah and former Vice President Joseph Boakai, Amb. Greenfield noted that Liberians had once again reaffirmed their commitment to democracy.
“We commend their dedication to exercising their right to vote broadly and peacefully. The United States will continue to promote accountability and will call out anyone who undermines the electoral process through fraud, violence, or intimidation.
At each step of this election, Liberians from all walks of life have expressed their desire for Liberia – one of the oldest continuous republics in the world – to become a beacon of peaceful citizen-centered democratic governance in the region. The United States remains committed to helping the people of Liberia achieve this goal.” She concluded.
