EFLA: Weah’s election is a glorious opportunity

EFLA President Kingston W. Wleh Sr.

Liberia’s President-elect George Weah should see the mandate given him by the Liberian electorate as a glorious opportunity for his incoming administration to craft and foster socio-economic policies that would unite and reconcile Liberians regardless of their political, religious, and social affiliations, says the European Federation of Liberian Associations (EFLA).

In addition, the organization also believes that the new administration should advance the cause of free speech, national unity and genuine reconciliation. 

EFLA, in a press release issued recently, expressed profound sentiments to Senators Weah and Jewel Howard-Taylor on their ascendency to the two highest offices in Liberia and admonished them to embrace their elections as a monumental decision that will promote and enhance national growth.

EFLA, headed by Kingston W. Wleh, Sr., described the overwhelming election of  Weah as a manifestation of the trust and confidence Liberians have in his ability to lead Liberia at this critical period in the country’s quest for sustained democracy, stability, reconciliation, rule of law, and peaceful co-existence.

The organization praised the Liberian electorate for the peaceful manner in which they exercised their democratic franchise on December 26.

EFLA added that Liberians demonstrated unresolved commitment to the democratic process that has been rooted in the country and further cautioned the Liberian electorate to nurture the process by supporting the programs of the newly elected leadership of the country to see a sustain and accountable leadership, thus promoting good governance and national development.

EFLA assured President-elect Weah of the organization’s unflinching support in the implementation of the country’s developmental and peace promotion agenda.

The organization opened it arms to hold discussions with the new leadership aimed at promoting the wellbeing and welfare of Liberians in Europe, with the desire to contribute positively to the upliftment of their country and also provide their expertise wherever needed.
