Others are Macaetoh Wreh Tokpah, Chair of the Women Congress; Curtis Dorley, Youth Congress Chairperson and Edmond Forh, National Treasurer.

A total of four hundred and twenty-five delegates from across the country participated in the elections.

Inducting the newly-elected Standard Bearer Saturday morning, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf challenged him to lead the party with diligence and commitment.
