President Weah Concedes Election to Boakai, Calls for Unity

In a surprising move, Liberia’s President George Weah conceded defeat to opposition leader Joseph Boakai, marking a win for democracy. Boakai, facing significant national challenges, secured 50.9% of the votes, ending Weah’s presidency plagued by corruption allegations.

Weah’s concession sets the stage for Liberia’s second peaceful transfer of power in seven decades. Boakai’s supporters celebrated in Monrovia, hopeful for change after years of poverty, unemployment, and unmet promises.

The nation, recovering from civil wars and an Ebola epidemic, looks to Boakai for a fresh start. Reuters is the original source for this information.
