Sirleaf’s 2nd term bid gets US moral support

US Secretary of state Hillary Clinton has given moral support to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s bid for a second term.


An Executive mansion release says Mrs. Clinton told a town hall meeting in the US she was delighted over the president’s decision.

The meeting with State Department employees in Washington, D.C was in celebration of Mrs. Clinton’s first year in office as Secretary of State.


According to the Executive Mansion the U.S Secretary of State made specific reference to the pioneering role played by President Sirleaf in combating gender-based violence in Liberia.


Madam Clinton reportedly spoke of the creation of special programs including a special court to protect women and children in Liberia.


The moral support comes amidst criticisms from several quarters that President Sirleaf betrayed Liberians by going back on her promise of one term.


Meanwhile, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has described as creative tension, the debate that followed her announcement to run for a second term.


The President said it was healthy for the democratic process in Liberia.


Madam Sirleaf in a simple English program to be broadcast said she made the decision in a quest to implement development programs that have started.


The president said she underestimated the challenges when she made a one term promise in 2005, saying a second term was necessary to complete the job.


Madam Sirleaf believes if another person takes over, he or she will not effectively implement development programs as planned by this government.


President Sirleaf also dismissed criticisms that she violated the constitution by announcing her bid during her annual message, saying the constitution does not forbid her.
