Africa’s oldest independent republics, and the nerve center of African innovation, celebrate perhaps one of the highest approval ratings of any newly elected Head of State:
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia. A new political leader, with tenacity and a savvy for finance, coupled with a political vision for the future, takes a firm stand for quality of life, as she steps forth to further the evolution for a much needed political change. ~Liberia: A Society at a Crossroads
"I have the obligation to bring pride to the women of Liberia, Africa and the entire world,"....E. Sirleaf.
~Latest news: Sirleaf offers olive branch to rival.
~Women and Children Rise for the need for peace 2002-03!
Decades at which former war-lord leadership gave little priority towards healing the plight of its people, Sirleaf will continue to move forth, shaping a landscape within the New Political Frontier, which lie before her.

"Everything I promised Liberians during the campaign, I again promise that I will fulfill my words,"....E. Sirleaf.
Serving priority, she has vowed that their government would restore the country's electricity and water services, badly damaged during the civil war. Mapping and implementation has begun.
