Democracy

Liberians support democracy and reject authoritarian alternatives, but they are not satisfied with the way democracy is working in the country, the latest Afrobarometer survey shows.

Support for presidential term limits and elections remain high in the country.

But support for multiparty competition has declined considerably over the past decade; about half of citizens now say that having many political parties just creates division and confusion.
