The people of Liberian all voted in favour of the move towards amendments proposed by President George Weah.
The amendments are to reduce the head of state’s term and allow dual citizenship.
Partial results for a third of the country’s regions were announced Tuesday December 15, 2020.
About 2.5 million voters were asked to vote on December 8 on eight constitutional amendments, including one reducing the presidential term from six to five years.
The National Elections Commission (NEC) said “yes” to all eight questions won in the five counties where the count was completed, out of 15 in Liberia.
The vote was also a referendum on President Weah, who had raised high hopes in 2018 by coming to power in this West African country.
The main opposition parties had called for a boycott of the referendum.
Although Weah, 54, is still in his first term, his opponents fear he will take advantage of a constitutional amendment to argue that the law offers him a fresh start, as did his Guinean counterpart and neighbor Alpha Condé and Ivory Coast’s Alassane Ouattara.
But Weah is quoted to have denied such claims.
