Weah’s assurance to Biden

-free, fair, and transparent election in 2023

President George Weah has assured United States President Joe Biden of a free, fair and transparent election here in 2023.

“I have participated in a lot of elections and even when the results were not favourable, we respected the results,” said President Weah. 

“My administration will ensure a free, fair, and transparent process in 2023 and Liberia will remain a bastion of peace, freedom, prosperity, and development under our watch,” said Wednesday during a meeting with Mr. Biden, while seeking “maximum support” to Liberia’s Elections in 2023 from the United States.

An Executive Mansion release dated 14 December says President Weah requested the maximum U.S. support for the 2023 elections during a select group of African leaders’ meeting in the White House with U.S. President Joseph R. Biden.

President Weah suggested that the maximum U.S. support should be provided as a way of consolidating democracy, rule of law and enhancing growth and development in Liberia and Africa as a whole.

That meeting with President Biden was held on the margins of the US-Africa Leaders Summit 2022, according to the release.

Mr. Weah is due to battle several opposition leaders in next year’s presidential and legislative elections in his bid to secure a second six-years term.

During the meeting, President Weah reiterated his strong commitment to the tenets of democracy where the will of the people prevails.

He committed U.S. support to the advancement of the ideals of democracy, rule of law, peace and security, and development on the continent.

According to the Executive Mansion, President Weah was scheduled on Thursday, 15 December 2022 to join other leaders and the U.S. President at the Leaders Forum.

Mr. Weah is expected to submit to the plenary on peace and security, resource mobilization for development, youth capacity building, and sustainable utilization of natural resources on the continent.
