Ruthie Ackerman – Sirleaf to Seek Second Term (Womens Media Center Blog)

Ruthie Ackerman.  “Sirleaf to Seek Second Term,” Womens Media Center Blog, February 11, 2010.

"Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf surprised and even angered some Liberians recently when she announced that she would run for a second term in office in 2011, after saying she wouldn’t during her campaign in 2005. Yet with so much left to do to repair Liberia after a devastating 14-year civil war, her choice to try to fulfill her myriad campaign promises—rather than leave office and risk the country falling backwards—makes sense."
