Paynesville – The Standard Bearer of the Unity Party, Ambassador Joseph Nyuma Boakai, has cast his ballot at the Kathleen McGuire Catholic School in Paynesville. Accompanied by his wife, Mrs. Kartumu Y. Boakai, the Former Second Lady of the Republic of Liberia, the Boakais participated in the democratic process at the precinct where they have cast their votes in the past two elections.
The McGuire Catholic School precinct holds significance for the Former Vice President, serving as a symbolic backdrop for his political journey. Today, however, marked a pivotal moment as Boakai aimed to secure a historic victory that would propel him to the presidency of Liberia.
The first round of the polls, which took place on October 10, saw the incumbent CDC in a neck-and-neck battle with no clear winner emerging. The anticipation and political tension escalated as the country prepared for the second round, originally scheduled for November 7, 2023. However, the date was pushed forward to November 14, a move that many Liberians perceived as a breach of the country’s constitution.
Despite the controversies surrounding the rescheduled date, Ambassador Boakai arrived at the McGuire Catholic School precinct with determination and optimism. As he marked his ballot, he expressed the significance of this moment, describing it as the most important ballot of his life, one that could potentially lead him to become the next President of Liberia.
Liberians across the nation are watching closely as the electoral process unfolds, eager to see the outcome of a closely contested race that has captured the attention and emotions of the entire nation. The Boakai campaign, built on the foundation of unity, hopes to bring about positive change and progress for Liberia. As the ballots are cast and the counting begins, the nation waits in anticipation for the announcement of its next leader.
