Liberia votes

In landmark elections slated for October 10, Liberians will vote in the country’s third postwar presidential and legislative races.

Incumbent Ellen Johnson Sirleaf — Africa’s first female president — is ineligible to run because of constitutionally mandated term limits. So January 2018 will mark the first time in recent memory that a democratically elected Liberian president will hand power to a similarly elected head of state.
