EDUCATION MINISTRY ANNOUNCES SUSPENSION OF CLASSES FOR RUNOFF ELECTION

Date:

MONROVIA – Ahead of Liberia’s presidential runoff election slated for 14 November 2023, the Ministry of Education has announced a week-long suspension of classes in all schools across the country.

Liberians go to polls on 14 November in a second round of voting between ruling party Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) candidate, incumbent President George Weah and main opposition Unity Party (UP) leader Joseph Boakai, in the race for the country’s presidency, following the failure of the two top candidates in the 10 October general elections to have obtained the constitutionally required 50 percent plus one vote to have won on the first ballot.

In a statement released to the press on Tuesday, the Ministry of Education indicated that the suspension of classes nationwide, is in preparation for the runoff election scheduled for Tuesday, 14 November 2023, indicating that classes are to be suspended as of the close of the school day on Friday, 10 November.

The Education Ministry also announced that classes shall officially resume on Thursday, 16 November, requesting all authorities of schools in the country to comply with its classes’ suspension directive for what the Ministry called a smooth process.

“Your cooperation is crucial for the success of our democratic process,” the Ministry of Education emphasized.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education is urging all stakeholders in the country’s education sector, its partners, and Liberians to exercise their constitutional rights in a peaceful and lawful manner during the conduct of the 14 November runoff election.
