As former Chair of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, Mahama has been celebrated for his commitment to ensuring the stability of the sub-region and the continent generally.

The election comes off between current Vice President John Boakai of the Unity Party, and former footballer George Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).

A technical support team, which is led by former Chairman of former Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan, assisted the Liberian NEC to update their systems, tackle the queries of the political parties, and to meet the directives of the Liberian Supreme Court.


John Mahama also had separate meetings with the two candidates going into the run-off, John Boakai and George Weah.
