Unity Party standard bearer, Joseph N. Boakai

The incumbent president, George Weah and the leading opposition candidate, Joseph Boakai had a tight race in the first round of election and none of them got the required 50% of the total votes required to announce a winner by the National Elections Commission (NEC).

In a statement today, Mr. Paye-Layleh said: “With no dislike for the other side, I have today formally endorsed the presidential bid of Amb. Joseph N. Boakai.

He continued: “I have taken a lot into consideration in deriving this decision. I will be in Bong and Nimba prevailing on the people there to think Liberia and vote Boakai. We need socio-economic stability, improved relationship with the outside world, especially with our traditional partner, the USA, dignity in labor and respect for rule of law.

“Thankfully, at least five of us who recently contested in Nimba District Eight, including the winner, Hon. Saye Mianah, are standing fully with Amb.  Boakai. It’s not about us and what we want individually. It’s about the dignity of the place we call home.I wish Liberia a peaceful election,” Paye-layleh’s statement concluded.
