Kenedeja, Paynesville City – President George M. Weah radiated immense confidence in winning the Tuesday, November 14 Presidential run-off.
Responding to journalists after casting his vote alongside his wife, Clar Duncan Weah, son Champ Weah, and entourage, the Liberian Leader, clad in his customary white voting outfit, emphasized that Liberians would elect him based on his accomplishments over the last six years.
According to him, he is explicitly confident that a successful re-election victory is highly possible because Liberians have a vested interest in his government.
President Weah stated, “I am always confident; I go through the process. Again, the confidence that Liberians have placed in me with my work. I think, with everything that I have done already, the Liberian people will elect me.”
The Liberian Leader, who led his Rehab Community neighbor, Joseph Nyumah Boakai, in the October 10 polls with marginal votes of 804,087 to 796,961, equivalent to 43.83% to 43.44%, expressed delight over the high level of calmness and non-violent attitude exhibited by Liberians in the polling processes.
With a slightly lower turnout compared to the October polls, Weah is realistically optimistic about more voters turning out before the 6 o’clock deadline provided by the NEC.
“Everybody is voting, and there is no tension. That’s the democracy we want,” he said.
Emphasizing, “I don’t want to say people are reluctant because up to 6 o’clock, people will be voting, so some people know the time they want to come vote. Like me, at 10 o’clock, I was supposed to be here, and I am here.”
