The landslide victory against his 73 year old opponent  Joseph Boakai makes the 1995 Balon D'Or winner the 25th president of Liberia succeeding first female president of the country Ellen Sirleaf Johnson.

Several stakeholders within the football terrain have expressed their joy with the sportsman's landmark and the FA president  was all chills as he joined Weah in celebration.

51 year old Weah won 11 out of 15 counties in the first round of election but widened the gap by capturing 13 out of 15 counties in the second round leaving his opponent with only 2 counties.
