Weah leading liberian elections

I found it pretty interesting. The former Milan player is about to become the President of Liberia. He was a great player and lets see if he could be a great president for his country too

I think it is a very good initiative. Sceptical as I am though, I hope he will not be killed. President of an unstable African nation is not the safest function if you ask me.

I do hope he gets the chance to make an impression as president though.

He's very popular in Liberia among the people, which is good. I doubt he will be worse then the previous presidents. I agree with Prince however, that becoming President in a instable country like Liberia is very risky. If I'm not mistaken he will be the first President that isn't Americo-Liberian after Moses Blah.

He always did a lot for Liberia when he was a player so maybe he can do a lot as President. But as Prince points out, we have to wait and see.
