Just-Ended Elections Symbolize “Victory For Democracy”, Says Pres. Sirleaf

MONROVIA, January 1 (LINA)-The Chief Executive has expressed delight over the conduct of the just-ended mid-term Senatorial Elections and congratulated the senators-elect for their victory.

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf asked God’s blessings and direction as they prepare or continue to take on the responsibility of national service.  She also commended the losers for their constructive and peaceful participation in what she termed “Victory for Democracy” and encouraged them to identify other ways in which they can continue to serve their country.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberia leader made the assertion in a nationwide address on the occasion of the beginning of the New Year, wishing all compatriots a happy and healthy 2015.

She praised the National Elections Commission for the efficient organization and arrangement of the process. “We recognize the role of all political parties, independent candidates, observers, civil society organizations, the media, and representatives of the competing interests at the various precincts for their contribution to the process.”

President Sirleaf paid tribute to the gallant men and women serving in various state security apparatuses for their loyalty, devotion and commitment to ensure law and order during the entire campaign period and on Election Day. “They gave to their country as they had sworn to do so diligently. We appreciate and acknowledge their service to the call of duty,” she said.

She said, although imperfect, the successful results of the polls serve as concrete example to the sub-region, Africa and the rest of the world that Liberia, a long way from the past, is now symbolizing the first steps of a journey toward democratic maturity.
