Voter Voices (Liberia 2017)

The year 2017 was a historic one for Liberia.

“For the first time in most of their lives, Liberians saw power transfer from one democratically elected president to another,” said Jordan Ryan, vice president of the Carter Center’s peace programs. “This is something that hasn’t happened in Liberia since the 1940s. Other presidents were forced from power, died in office, or murdered in coups.

“This is an exciting moment for democracy in Africa.”
