I Won’t Run Again for President – George Weah

Liberia’s departing President George Weah has declared that he will not run for re-election in 2029, following his recent electoral defeat. The former international footballer, who was elected in 2017, concedes defeat in November to Joseph Boakai.


Speaking to churchgoers outside Monrovia on Sunday, Weah stated that he will be 63 in six years and that, because his retirement age is 65, he has no plans to remain engaged in politics after that age.


He underlined the importance of spending time with his family and thanked Liberians for their support during his leadership, promising to foster peace and prosperity in the country.

Weah did not disclose his plans but affirmed his party, the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), would remain a strong opposition.
