By B. Linus Flomo

Liberian President, George Weah, conceded defeat today to Joseph Boakai in the presidential run-off election that was held on November 14.  They congratulated president-elect Boakai on his victory and President Weah for his peaceful acceptance of the results.  As President Weah said in his concession speech, “Tonight, the CDC has lost the election, but Liberia has won. This is a time for graciousness in defeat, a time to place our country above party, and patriotism above personal interest. Let us heal the divisions caused by the campaign and come together as one nation and one united people.”

The United States congratulates the people of Liberia on holding a peaceful presidential run-off election. We note the broad participation of Liberians across the country and applaud the commitment and dedication of Liberian citizens in exercising their right to vote and in engaging in the electoral process peacefully.

They call on all citizens to follow President Weah’s example and accept the results.

Liberians deserve and expect free, fair, and peaceful elections. “We call on all citizens to follow President Weah’s example and accept the results”. “We congratulate Liberia’s institutions on a successful electoral process, especially the dedicated work of the National Elections Commission and the thousands of Liberians who worked at the polls.”
