Liberian President George Weah will not seek a third term in office as Liberian President. This was announced by his chief of staff Nathaniel McGill.
“It is not good for one man to be president for a long time,” he said.
“The president is not thinking about a third term.”
Speculation had been growing in the West African nation that 54-year-old Weah would exploit a December 8 constitutional referendum to extend his stay in office.
Liberia’s December referendum will ask voters whether to reduce presidential terms from six years to five.
A limit on two presidential terms will be kept in place.
Weah currently serving as the President of Liberia, is in office since 2018.
