Liberia has conducted two successful presidential elections since her civil war officially ended in 2003, August 18 to be exact. Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf defeated soccer legend George Weah in 2005 and in 2011, Cllr. Winston Tubman, a renowned international lawyer and nephew of the late President William V. S. Tubman was defeated again by Madam Sirleaf.
As President Sirleaf second and final term is coming to an end, the process of electing a new President is ongoing. So far, the frontrunners in these elections are Senator George Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change and Vice President Joseph Boakai of the Unity Party, the same party which President Sirleaf won with in the two recent elections.
