Liberia’s Electoral System


Pyotr Kupriyanov


The article is devoted to the electoral system that has been functioning in Liberia for over 170 years. The focus is made on the 2005 elections. These were the first democratic elections to be held in peacetime after the long brutal civil war that had killed hundreds of thousands of people and almost completely destroyed the country’s economy.
