Polls have opened in downtown Moserato, which hosts Liberia’s capital city of Monrovia as the country elects a president for a six-year tenure.
Voters have reportedly turned up in their numbers, some of them queuing since the wee hours of the morning to enable them to vote early.
Peace is uppermost on the minds of Liberians as they go to the polls.
In other news, former President Goodluck Jonathan has led a West African delegation, also known as the West African Elders Forum (WAEF), to observe the 2023 election in Liberia scheduled for October 10.
In a statement on Sunday, the spokesman of the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, Wealth Ominabo, said the former president and the delegation left Nigeria on Saturday for Monrovia.
He said members of the mission include the former Burkina Faso Prime Minister and one-time President of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Kadre Ouedraogo.
Ominabo said the team would be on hand to observe how the elections progress and provide support for peaceful elections to ensure “consolidation of democracy in the country, leveraging their experiences as former leaders of the sub-region”.
