In her early years, she went to the United States to study and received a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University.
In the 1970s, he served as Minister of Finance in the government of Liberia.
Liberia was forced into exile after a coup in 1980.
In 1985, he returned home to run for parliament, but was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment by the then DOE government on the charge of “wanton incitement”.
Under the pressure of all sectors of society, she was released from prison after several months of detention.
After the coup in 1989, Sirleaf was forced into exile again.
In July 1997, Liberia held presidential elections.
Sirleaf ran as one of 13 presidential candidates, and only 10% of the votes failed to achieve his wish.
In the presidential election on November 8, 2005, Sirleaf won a majority of 59.
4%, becoming the first democratically elected female president in African history.
Sirleaf has served as an official of Liberia to the United Nations.
He has also worked for the United Nations Development Programme, Citibank, the world bank and some private financial institutions.
Sirleaf has won people’s respect with his unique personality charm in Liberian politics and enjoys the reputation of “Iron Lady”.
She is divorced and has four children.
On January 16, 2006, a woman over 60 years old was sworn in as president of Liberia under the red, white and blue flag at the Antoinette Tubman stadium in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia.
She vowed to “rebuild hope for Liberia”.
Since then, she has officially become the first democratically elected female president in Africa and began a six-year presidential career.
She, once a waiter, has done the work of sweeping the floor.
A former Harvard graduate who worked for the world’s top financial institutions.
He once became a prisoner for several times and was forced to exile abroad for a long time.
Today, she is the first African woman to win the presidency.
She is Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, known as the “Iron Lady” in Liberian politics.
Ellen Johnson and Sirleaf are the first elected female president in Africa.
She is the 51st most influential woman in the world.
Her life is full of legends.
As a woman, Ellen Johnson.
Sirleaf was both unfortunate and lucky.
The symbol of “woman” became an obstacle to Sirleaf’s first election, and her life fell to a low ebb.
However, faith and persistence have become the key to Sirleaf’s transit.
“Today is the beginning of a new era.
After years of turmoil and instability, China will usher in a new dawn.
” “Do my best to faithfully, dutifully and fairly perform my duties and duties as president of the Republic of Liberia.
” “Liberia will be cast in our hands, and we will love it and be proud of it.
” [right] – Ellen Johnson Sirleaf 1.
Sirleaf’s family background the Republic of Liberia declared its independence on July 26, 1847.
It is located in western Africa and close to the Atlantic Ocean in the southwest.
Monrovia, the capital, with a population of 3.
48 million (2005), is also known as Africa’s “Natural Rubber Kingdom”, “Africa gate” and “merchant shipping kingdom”.
It is one of the world’s least developed countries announced by the United Nations.
Liberia means “land of freedom” in English.
It is located in West Africa, bordering Guinea in the north, Sierra Leone in the northwest, C ô te d’Ivoire in the East and the Atlantic Ocean in the southwest.
It became independent and established a republic in 1847.
The national emblem of Liberia and the scenery on the shield depict the scene of American slaves moving to the coast of West Africa.
A large sailboat sailing at sea represents the main means of transportation that carried slaves to Africa in those years.
Green land and palm trees are on the shore, symbolizing the fertile land of the newly independent country.
Plows and hoes symbolize the means of production used by free slaves in those years.
The ribbon at the top of the coat of arms reads “love freedom brought us here” in English, and the ribbon at the bottom reads “Republic of Liberia”.
With an area of more than 110000 square kilometers and a population of more than 3 million, this African country is rich in natural resources, unique agricultural and animal husbandry conditions and has great potential for economic development.
It was once a rich country envied by West African countries.
However, Liberia’s civil war broke out in 1989, which lasted 14 years.
At least 250000 people died and more than 1 million people fled their homes to become refugees.
Years of war have destroyed infrastructure, shut down most factories, abandoned a large number of farmland, and the national economy is on the verge of collapse.
Liberia is listed by the United Nations as one of the 49 least developed countries in the world.
The average daily living cost of most Liberians is only 25 cents, which is far lower than the minimum living cost of US $1 per day set by the United NationsHer parents will be warmly welcomed to his hometown.
Sirleaf was under 50 and strong.
As soon as she heard this, a bright smile burst out on her swarthy face.
After many days of running, they are very tired and urgently need enough sleep and good supplies.
Although the whole of Liberia is in turmoil, the village in front of her seems to be in peace.
The whole village seems to be a peaceful scene.
Although the houses are small, they are scattered and orderly.
The village is surrounded by verdant trees and lush branches and leaves.
As they approached the village, a burst of gunfire rang out from behind a big tree, and the bullet hit Sirleaf head-on.
The well-trained visa threw her to the ground and she was saved.
However, the evil bullet took the young life of visa.
Later, the investigation found that the shooter was VESA’s neighbor, a young man named ASA, who had such evil thoughts because he was jealous of VESA’s success.
More than ten years later, in the summer of 1997, when Sirleaf hurried through the village again with her entourage, she decided to stop even though it was still early and they could still catch a lot of roads.
Because she can never forget the two families in the village not far away: the children of one family used to be her personal escort.
The child of another family had assassinated her.
When she entered VESA’s house, VESA’s mother was carrying a bag of grain out of the house.
When she saw her son’s former boss, she looked very happy, hugged her warmly, and invited them to the house to entertain them warmly.
After settling down, visa’s mother carried the bag of grain and said she was going out.
She carefully asked VESA’s mother where she was going with food on her back? Weisa’s mother said, “go and send food to ASA’s mother, because ASA ran away after firing a black gun.
There has been no news for more than ten years.
ASA’s single mother is old and weak, and the family can’t open the pot.
” She couldn’t help asking visa’s mother, “aren’t they our enemies?” VESA’s mother’s answer surprised her again: “that’s all over.
Complaining can only increase more hatred.
” VESA’s mother’s words deeply shocked her.
She faced hatred with hatred.
Hatred will never end, and both sides will never get rid of hatred.
War stricken Liberia needs not hatred, not war, but tolerance, because tolerance can resolve contradictions, eliminate estrangement, enable her to gain understanding and respect, and win the support of the people.
Since then, she has not only faced her past opponents with a tolerant attitude, but also called on the Liberian people to forget their hatred and heal the wounds of history with tolerance and reconciliation.
This is an important reason why she won the understanding and support of the Liberian people and ascended the presidency through popular election. 3. Sirleaf was elected the first female president in African history.
Sirleaf was born on October 29, 1938.
Her ancestors were slaves in North Africa.
Sirleaf married at the age of 17 and gave birth to four sons.
At the age of 40, she became Liberia’s minister of finance.
The president at that time was William Talbot, who was the representative of the upper class of black immigrants in the United States.
On April 12, 1980, 17 soldiers headed by Sergeant Samuel doe, an indigenous clansman, launched a coup to overthrow President Talbot’s regime, put an end to the rule of the upper class of black immigrants for more than 100 years, and established a military government headed by DOE.
Sirleaf witnessed the execution of many senior government officials and became one of the only four ministers who escaped assassination.
Finally, she was forced into exile in the United States.
During a business college in Madison, Sirleaf worked as a waiter and swept the floor in a small restaurant.
Later, she studied economics at Harvard University and received a master’s degree in public administration.
When she returned home to run for election in 1985, she was sent to a military court by the then DOE government for the crime of “wanton incitement” and sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment.
Later, under pressure from the United States, Sirleaf was released after serving two months in prison.
After being released from prison, she was elected as a senator by her party, the “Unity Party”.
But Sirleaf unexpectedly declined, and resolutely decided to return to prison and fight side by side with other imprisoned political leaders.
Finally, due to, doe was forced to order a pardon for all political prisoners.
This unique personality charm has won wide respect for her and won the reputation of “Iron Lady” in politics.
After his release from prison, Sirleaf worked for the United Nations Development Programme in New York and the world bank.
At the end of 1989, the “National Patriotic Front” (hereinafter referred to as “love front”) led by Taylor started a civil war with the army of the DOE government.
After that, the “love front” split internally, forming a situation of tripartite scuffle with government forces.
In 1990, the government of DOE was overthrown, but the civil war did not stop.
In 1996, Taylor agreed to establish an interim government and elected Ruth Perry as interim president.
Perry therefore established the first female president in African history.
But compared with Sirleaf, Perry was not elected by the people.
In 1997, under the supervision of the United Nations, Taylor came to power through an election.
Sirleaf also participated in the election that year, which was her first impact on the presidency, but her vote rate was less than 10%.
After Taylor came to power, the situation did not improve significantly, and the armed forces of all factions still exchanged fire.
In June 2003, the government and the rebels signed a ceasefire agreement.
On 11 August, the Taylor government officially stepped down, and Liberia has been managed by the interim transitional government since then.
In 2003, Sirleaf launched a second attack on the presidency, but the parties reached an agreement and elected Charles Judd Bryant, a neutral representative, as the chairman of the transitional government.
Sirleaf says it’s not easy to be in a male dominated world.
Her supporters often make friendly jokes about her masculine character, calling it “she is our man”.
The general election in 2005 was the first democratic election in Liberia after more than a decade of civil war.
“It’s not an opportunity to learn, it’s an opportunity to work.
You have to fulfill your mission and achieve your goals and lead the Liberian people to rebuild Liberia in all aspects,” said Victoria Sirleaf, a young opponent and star of the face team When asked whether Africa is ready for the first democratically elected female president, Sirleaf replied bluntly: “Africa is ready.
Now women’s education level continues to improve, and there are women leaders in economic, cultural and other fields.
As a female leader, she is fully capable of leading a country.
Soon, peopleYou will find that it is us, men and women who own this country together.
” “I hope young girls can take me as an example and inspire themselves.
I really hope that more and more girls in Liberia and Africa can continue to improve their situation,” Sirleaf said In Africa, female senior officials are indeed few, but not none.
There are women vice presidents in South Africa, there are women prime ministers in Mozambique, and democratic prime ministers in Sao Tome and Principe have women prime ministers.
Sirleaf wants at least 30% of his cabinet to be women.
“If you look around Africa, you’ll find that women also have their own positions in Parliament and cabinet.
They perform very well and I’m about to join them,” she said In the presidential campaign, women voters were on Sirleaf’s side.
Yes, Sirleaf is an international banker, but in the eyes of libri Adam, it is just a rural woman on the same level as them, joking in Liberian English and singing and dancing with her supporters.
Sirleaf said he hoped to integrate his mother’s sensitivity and emotion into the general unification post and heal the wounds of the war in Liberia.
“It may be natural for women to really take care of others.
Women are naturally suitable for taking care of children and maintaining family cohesion, and what our country needs is selfless dedication,” she told reporters As everyone with a clear eye knows, Sirleaf’s remarks are out of the needs of the election campaign, because Sirleaf is not famous for raising children in the field of international finance.
But Sirleaf’s supporters have every reason to call the strong, business minded female manager “our man” because she is so tough on herself and others.
At the same time, political strategy has also played a role that can not be ignored.
In the final weeks of the campaign, Sirleaf formed a key alliance with the party that lost the first round of voting.
Sirleaf often advertises that he has nothing to do with warlords and military leaders.
She tried her best to highlight her mother’s image and often mentioned her four sons.
On Sirleaf’s impressive resume, in addition to words such as HSBC and the world bank, she also listed “the granddaughter of Crewe women who do business in the market”.
Obviously, Sirleaf’s move is to narrow the distance with the Liberian people, because many local women are illiterate and live on less than $1 a day.
In October 2005, Liberia’s presidential election kicked off again, which was the country’s first truly democratic election after more than a decade of civil war.
Not only did Liberians attach great importance to the election, but the international community also paid full attention to it.
Hundreds of international monitors closely monitored the election.
The presidential election was a lively one – more than 20 people were allowed to run.
Although there are no reliable opinion polls, only two of the 22 presidential candidates have the highest voice: George wea, the “lone African star” in sports, who enjoys the title of “footballer”, and Sirleaf, a Harvard master and Liberian “Iron Lady”.
Before the election, the British Sunday Times published a column pointing out that the election of viah and Sirleaf is a contest between the two major forces in Liberia.
Viah represents the poor grass-roots class with mostly illiterate and poor food, while Sirleaf represents the well-educated elite.
Therefore, the election is also regarded as a duel between the two major forces.
Some media jokingly call it a contest between “muscle” and “brain”.
Sirleaf’s campaign slogan is “I’m a woman, listen to me roar”.
On the wall of Sirleaf’s office is a speech by Martin Luther King, the American civil rights leader, and a road map showing how to get to remote villages.
She also launched the campaign platform of “eliminating corruption and seeking development”.
She went deep into factories and rural areas to carry out her campaign.
In boporu, Sirleaf stood on a dirt road full of puddles and spoke to voters in the twilight with his headlights.
“We don’t want any corruption anymore!” Her speech “Liberians are full of hope and we know what to do and will do it” during the election deeply moved the voters.
She promised that if elected, she would power Monrovia, which has no water or electricity for a long time, within six months.
She also promised to rebuild schools and open vocational training centers.
“We don’t want to see you sitting in the village.
We want to see you at school,” she said to the young man.
“No one can take away what’s in your mind.
” On November 23, 2005, Morris, chairman of Liberia’s National Election Commission, announced in the capital Monrovia that the final statistical results of the second round of voting showed that Sirleaf, who participated on behalf of the “Unity Party”, won 59.
4% of the votes and was elected the new president of Liberia.
Many media around the world reported on the Liberian general election for the first time.
The BBC reported that Sirleaf’s victory is of great symbolic significance to Liberia and that this day is also of great significance to African women.
Some media commented that people all over the world hope that this strong African woman who has been nurtured by Harvard University in the United States can live up to expectations and become a “Lighthouse” to illuminate Africa.
“The Liberian people have made history by democratically electing a female president, and the people of the whole of Africa are watching.
They are waiting anxiously and they want to see the result, because it will open more doors for women to compete at all levels of society more effectively than now,” Sirleaf said On November 15, 2005, the counting of votes in Liberia’s presidential election was completed.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, an “Iron Lady” who graduated from Harvard University in the United States, won a majority of 59.
4%, defeated the former “World Footballer” George Weah and was elected president of Liberia.
Despite being a woman, Sirleaf’s political style is not weak.
After becoming Liberia’s presidential candidate, Sirleaf once asked Ghanaian President John Kufuor, “can you accept a female president?” As a result, Kufuor said, “I don’t think of you as a woman.
” Sirleaf could only laugh at this answer, but she had to agree with Kufuor’s answer to some extent.
“I’ve been involved in difficult areas in my life that women don’t usually enter.
” During the administration of former Liberian President Samuel doe, SirleafHe was jailed twice for disagreeing with the president.
During the 1997 Liberian presidential election, Sirleaf competed with Charles Taylor, the most feared political figure in Liberia at that time.
Although Sirleaf eventually lost by a large margin of votes, she became a well-known political figure in the country and won the reputation of “Iron Lady”.
Sirleaf’s presidential campaign commented on the woman, both mother and grandmother: “Ellen, she’s our ‘man’.
” Regardless of education, political qualifications or financial experience, Sirleaf can definitely be regarded as Liberia’s “elite”.
She was born on October 29, 1938.
In Liberia, a country where illiteracy accounts for about 75% of the total population, few women can read, but Sirleaf has received higher education in the United States.
He also has a degree from the University of Colorado and a master’s degree from the Harvard School of public administration.
This is inseparable from Sirleaf’s relatively rich family background.
Sirleaf’s father was the son of the chief of the Gula tribe in Bomi County, Liberia, and eventually grew into the first local lawyer in the national legislature.
Her mother also grew up in a colonial family in Monrovia and received higher education.
In terms of political qualifications, Sirleaf’s experience is not simple.
She has served as a Liberian official to the United Nations and as Minister of Finance in the government of former Liberian President William Richard Talbot.
At that time, it was rare for a woman to hold such a high position in the government.
Sirleaf is also a female banker.
She worked for the world bank and Citibank, the world’s largest financial group, and also worked in some private financial institutions.
Sirleaf’s supporters believe that her work experience in the economic field is very important for Liberia.
Liberia, which has just passed the civil war, urgently needs economic assistance to provide financial support for various reconstruction efforts.
Today, Sirleaf, who calls the wind and rain, has also stumbled politically.
In the late 1980s, when former Liberian President Samuel doe was in power, Sirleaf supported Taylor in exile to overthrow DOE regime in order to fight against doe.
In 1989, Taylor led the armed forces into Liberia, which was then plunged into a seven-year civil war.
For this reason, many Liberians regard the outbreak of civil war as the darkest scene in Sirleaf’s political career.
Sirleaf himself regretted that he had supported Taylor.
She said she felt “guilty” about the failure of the previous Liberian government, but also said she would learn from her past mistakes.
Win the election: the contest between “muscle” and “brain”.
In January 2010, Sirleaf announced in Congress that she would run for a second term in the 2011 presidential election.
She was elected as the party’s presidential candidate at the Coalition Party Congress on October 31, 2010.
On the same day, she also nominated the current Vice President Joseph boakai to continue to run as her partner.
The opposition noted that her statement contradicted her commitment to only serve any term if elected when she ran for the election in 2005.
She was elected as the party’s presidential candidate at the Coalition Party Congress on October 31, 2010.
On the same day, she also nominated the current Vice President Joseph boakai to continue to run as her partner.
The first round of voting in the 2011 presidential election was held on October 11. 71.8% of the voters participated in the voting.
She won 43.
9% of the votes, and Winston Tubman, a candidate from the conference on democratic change, came second with 32.7%. Since they did not obtain an absolute majority, a second round of balloting was held on November 8 of the same year.
Tubman claimed that Sirleaf’s supporters had monopolized the first round of voting, so he called on his supporters to boycott the second round of voting, resulting in only 38% voting.
Finally, the Election Commission announced on November 15 that Sirleaf won 90.
7% of the votes (she won 607618 votes and Tubman won 62207 votes) and was successfully re elected president.
After winning the presidency, “Iron Lady” Sirleaf is facing severe challenges.
The fact before her is that the civil war in Liberia broke out in 1989 and ended in 2003.
It lasted 14 years, killing at least 250000 people and uprooting 1 million people.
At present, the unemployment rate in Liberia is as high as 80%.
Most of its more than 3 million people are illiterate.
Hundreds of thousands of people still live in shelters and rely on relief, while many well-educated people live overseas.
However, in the face of such a devastated country, “Iron Lady” Sirleaf did not shrink back, but looked very confident.
In an interview, she said: “the result of the election is the choice of the whole Liberian people.
They hope that I can lead the people of the whole country to reach greater understanding, so that the country can completely get rid of war and embark on the road of peaceful development!” She said: since several men cannot change the political situation in Liberia, now let her change it.
She believes her performance will not disappoint the Liberian people.
“I have brought expertise, democratic principles and a mother’s sensitivity to this position,” she said When she was running for the presidency, she used the slogan of “eradicating corruption and seeking development”.
In her inaugural speech, she once again expressed her determination to fight corruption to the end.
She said: “no matter where it happens, no matter who it is, I will declare war on corruption.
” She made it clear that her government would intensify its anti-corruption efforts.
“In my government, corruption will be the main public enemy, and we will fight it to the end,” she said During the civil war, 200000 people died and millions were displaced.
For Sirleaf, the most important thing after taking office is all factions in the United Nations in order to stabilize Liberia.
“I want to form a ‘coalition government’.
The biggest challenge I face is these different parties, and even some people who don’t want to see the government work successfully.
What I have to do is to appease them and make them believe me,” Sirleaf said Another big problem facing Sirleaf is whether tens of thousands of armed elements who abandoned their weapons last year should be arranged to go to school, receive professional training, or take office? The unemployment rate in Liberia is currently estimated at 80 per cent.
Sirleaf said he would ask for part of the country’s debt, about $3.
But Liberia’s national budget is only $80 millionIt’s amazing to integrate harmoniously.
” Lin Songtian, the accompanying Chinese ambassador to Liberia, told reporters that Johnson Sirleaf’s visit to China was her first state visit since taking office and her first visit to Asian countries.
With a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University, Johnson Sirleaf has successively served as Liberia’s minister of finance, Citibank and senior United Nations officials.
Johnson Sirleaf can be called the best among women.
She married at the age of 17 and gave birth to four children.
After divorce from her husband, she raised four children alone.
In the 1997 Liberian presidential election, Johnson Sirleaf competed with rival Taylor.
But in conservative Liberia, divorced and single women are not easily accepted.
“Single mother” finally lost by a large gap.
In November 2005, Johnson Sirleaf, who did not admit defeat, participated in the Liberian presidential election again and was successfully elected.
After taking office, she confidently said that the emergence of a female president will open more doors for women to participate in the competition of all levels of society with a more effective attitude.
During her visit to Beijing, Johnson LIF said that she was committed to improving the rights and interests of women in her country again.
Johnson Sirleaf said that in Liberia, women can engage in all occupations, including government dignitaries.
“If you wish, you can do whatever you want,” she added, adding that the Liberian government had implemented specific projects to assist girls in receiving education.
In the next few years, the government of Liberia plans to build 50 schools, train 500 teachers and set up 5000 scholarship programs to help poor women realize their dream of education.
At a press conference, a foreign reporter asked Johnson Sirleaf how do you think China’s policy towards Africa is different from that of the EU or the United States.
The female president thought for a moment and answered that in the process of helping Africa, China has given Africa more space to formulate their own development strategies according to the specific conditions of each country.
She stressed that each country should formulate development plans on the basis of understanding its own limitations.
At present, China has signed memoranda with Liberia on helping to develop Liberian oil, rebuild universities damaged in the war and build radio networks.
Since the resumption of diplomatic relations between China and Liberia, the political mutual trust between the two countries has been continuously strengthened, and the bilateral trade volume has increased year by year.
China has sent four batches of medical teams to Liberia and nearly 600 peacekeepers to participate in the United Nations peacekeeping operation in Liberia.
The Chinese government supports Liberia’s economic construction and is willing to provide applicable advanced agricultural technology to help it solve the problem of food self-sufficiency as soon as possible.
Johnson Sirleaf stressed that she hopes to enhance cooperation with China in trade, investment and other fields and bring tangible benefits to the two peoples.
On the Beijing Summit, Johnson Sirleaf said that the Forum on China Africa cooperation is an opportunity to strengthen China Africa relations.
The convening of the forum will enable the two sides to understand the progress and achievements of China Africa cooperation, discuss how to carry out further cooperation in the fields of economy, trade and investment, and promote the perception and in-depth understanding of each other’s history and culture. 5. Sirleaf won the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Nobel Peace Prize was founded in 1901 and has a history of more than 100 years.
It was established according to the will of Alfred Bernhard Nobel (1833-1896), a famous Swedish chemist and inventor of nitroglycerin explosive.
Nobel set up five awards in his will, and the peace prize is one of them.
As of 2006, 94 people and 19 institutions have won the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the five Nobel prizes founded by the Swedish inventor Alfred Bernhard Nobel (1833-1896).
According to Nobel’s will, the Nobel Peace Prize should not be awarded in Sweden together with the other four awards, but in Oslo, the capital of Norway.
The peace prize committee is a five member Norwegian Nobel Committee, whose members are appointed by the Norwegian Parliament.
According to Nobel’s will, the peace prize should be awarded to “those who have made the greatest efforts or contributions to promoting national unity and friendship, canceling or reducing the standing army and organizing and publicizing the peace conference”.
However, in recent years, the selection committee has gradually broadened the scope of the peace prize.
However, the award can also be awarded to institutions and organizations that meet the award conditions.
Due to the nature of the peace prize, the object of the prize is often not necessarily recognized by everyone.
Compared with other Nobel prizes, it is more controversial, and its selection conditions are often limited to the position of the peace prize evaluation committee.
On October 7, 2011, the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize was announced.
Liberian female President Sirleaf and her compatriots Leiman gubowi, a feminist activist, and Yemeni female journalist tawakul Kaman were awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize for their non violent struggle for women’s security and power.
Sirleaf was born in Monrovia in 1938.
From 1948 to 1955, he studied economics and accounting at the West African College in the capital.
1961 – traveled to the United States with her husband and continued to study accounting at the University of Wisconsin Madison in Madison, Wisconsin, and later received a degree in economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
From 1969 to 1971, he studied economics and public policy at the John F.
Kennedy School of government and obtained a master’s degree in public administration.
From 1972 to 1973, he served as assistant secretary of finance.
1979 – April 1980, served as Treasury Secretary in President William Tolbert’s cabinet.
1997 – in the presidential election, he ranked second with 9.
58%, far behind Charles Taylor’s 75.33%. In 2005, he ran for president again, defeated George Weah with 59.
4% of the votes and was successfully elected.
He took office on January 16, 2006.
She is the first and only African female president.
In January 2010, she announced in Congress that she would run for a second term in the 2011 presidential election.
On October 31, 2010, he was elected as the party’s presidential candidate at the League Party Congress.
On November 10, 2011, he won the second round of presidential election in Liberia with 90.
8% of the votes and was successfully re elected.
Public opinion thinks Johnson Sirleaf is a well-known figure in Africa.
nowadays, it is nothing new for women to serve as senior government officials and even heads of state.
However, women are rarely seen at the top of politics in this vast land of Africa.
In November 2005, when Johnson Sirleaf, representing the “Unity Party”, defeated former World Footballer George Weah in the general election and won the presidency, the media all over the world reported for the first time, because it not only meant the emergence of the first democratically elected female president on the African continent, but also had extraordinary significance for African women.
