Liberia Overview

Liberia, Republic in West Africa. The land rises from the mostly swampy coastal plain (mangrove swamps) in low steps to the highlands; there is a hot, humid tropical climate; Liberia is mostly covered with tropical rainforest. More than half of the population is employed in agriculture (especially rubber, coffee, cocoa); mining (iron ore, diamonds, gold) is also important. The world’s second largest merchant fleet (after Panama) operates under the Liberian flag. In addition to the descendants of slaves who have returned from America (3%), the population includes 20 ethnic groups of Sudanese peoples and Lebanese.

History: Since 1822, freed slaves from the USA were settled on the “Pepper Coast” against the fierce resistance of the local tribes. In 1847 the independent Republic of Liberia was proclaimed.

History

Following the example of the Republic of South Africa, a truth and reconciliation commission began its work at the end of June 2006 to investigate human rights violations between 1979 and 2003 (final report 2009). The Reconciliation Commission criticized the President’s earlier support for C. Taylor and recommended that she not run in the next presidential election. In 2011 E. Johnson-Sirleaf was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In the second round of the presidential elections on November 8, 2011, which was overshadowed by riots, the population confirmed her in office. Your challenger Winston Tubman (* 1941; CDC), a nephew of former President W. Tubman, accused the president of fraud after the first round of elections, withdrew his candidacy and called on his supporters to boycott the runoff election. At the same time as the first round of the presidential election, elections were held for both houses of parliament. The President’s Unity Party (UP) became the strongest force in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. The Special Tribunal for Sierra Leone sentenced former Liberian President C. Taylor to 50 years in prison as a war criminal (confirmed on appeal on September 26, 2013).

Elections to the House of Representatives and the presidential election took place on October 10, 2017. In the presidential election, for which E. Johnson-Sirleaf could constitutionally no longer run, none of the candidates won the absolute majority required. This made a runoff election between George Weah, candidate of the opposition coalition Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), and long-time Vice President Joseph Boakai (* 1944), candidate of the ruling Unity Party, necessary. According to preliminary results, Weah had won 38.4% of the vote on Boakai afterwards accounted for 28.8%. After appeals against the result of the first round because of suspected fraud, the Supreme Court suspended the runoff election planned for the following day on November 6, 2017. In the election for the House of Representatives, the CDC alliance replaced the Unity Party as the strongest force. After the objections were rejected, the runoff election for the office of president was finally held on December 26, 2017. Here sat Weah with 61.5% of the vote against his opponent Boakai.
