The outcome of the October 2023 elections is for the people of Liberia to decide. The British Embassy in Monrovia engages with the Government of Liberia, political parties, civil society and other key stakeholders on issues of good governance, the rule of law and the importance of free, fair and peaceful elections. Our Embassy is working closely with international partners including the US, UN and Economic Community of West African States to support the delivery and monitoring of an election that properly reflects the will of the Liberian people.
