MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The United States is commending the people of Liberia for exercising their democratic right to vote in the historic presidential and legislative elections.

In a press statement Tuesday, October 10, 2017, the U.S.Government described the elections an important step toward achieving Liberia’s first peaceful transfer of power from one democratically-elected head of state to another in decades.

According to the Statement, the U.S. salutes Liberia’s success in holding free and fair elections in 2005, 2011, and 2014, and urges Liberians to build on that tradition.

The Statement further encouraged Liberians to peacefully and patiently await the official results from the National Elections Commission.

It said the United States stands by the people of Liberia in their efforts to continue building their country, its democracy, and its future.

It then concluded that the United States looks forward to advancing the longstanding mutual interests in economic development, trade, security, health care, and the strengthening of democratic institutions, while challenges remain.
