Updated: Feb 23

On Saturday, February 22, 2020, the Liberian Swedish Association Norrland Branch (LSANB) successfully conducted an election after a year under interim leadership. LSANB represents Liberians residing in the northern regions of Sweden and is an extension of the Liberian Swedish Association, LSA.

The election was efficiently managed by the appointed Election Commissioners, Mr. Beyan Raphael Kesselly, Chairman, and Mr. Abraham Jallah, Co-Chairman. Following a series of electoral activities, the following individuals emerged victorious: Mr. Ambrose Julue as Chairman, Mr. George T. Wilson as Vice Chairman, Mr. Sekou A. Konneh as General Secretary, and Mrs. Elizabeth J. Bah as the Financial Secretary for the LSANB community.

Originally, an inaugural ceremony was planned for Saturday, April 4th in Umeå. However, due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Sweden and the restrictions on public gatherings imposed by Swedish authorities, the event was postponed indefinitely. Nevertheless, with collaborative efforts from the leadership of LSA Stockholm Headquarters, the election commissioners, and the outgoing LSANB leadership, an inaugural ceremony was held on Saturday, April 19th, via the online platform "Zoom". During this event, LSA President David Ford administered the oath of office to the newly elected officials.

Addressing the gathering, the newly installed Chairman of LSANB, Mr. Ambrose Julue, expressed his goal of fostering unity among LSANB members and ensuring effective collaboration with LSA Stockholm Headquarters and other LSA chapters. He emphasized that unity would pave the way for achieving the branch's objectives.

LSA's Vice President, Mrs. Joseph, and General Secretary, Mrs. Sandy, commended the outgoing interim leadership, led by Weah Ephraim Harris, for their commendable efforts. They urged the incoming leaders to remain steadfast in their roles, overcoming challenges for the betterment of LSANB members and all Liberians in Sweden.

In his closing remarks, LSA President Mr. Ford lauded the election commissioners for ensuring a free and fair election process. He encouraged the incoming leadership to exhibit tolerance, forgiveness, and diligence in addressing present and future challenges within the LSANB community.
