“I am not Leaving Liberia Anytime Soon” -Amb. McCarthy Reacts To Reports About His Replacement

United States Ambassador to Liberia, Michael A. McCarthy has said he is still Ambassador until his predecessor can be confirmed by the U.S. Senate, something he said is not likely to happen anytime soon.

On March 28, 2023, the U.S White House on its website announced the nomination of Mark Christopher Toner as the U.S new Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Liberia.

Mr. Toner if confirmed by the U.S Senate, will replaced current U.S Ambassador Michael McCarthy who is being hailed across Liberia for his stance against corruption in the Country.

Furthermore, the move to replace the U.S ambassador is coming just after President George Weah was invited to Langley, the CIA global headquarters- US Spy Agency in Washington.

And key amongst McCarthy legacy as U.S Ambassador to Liberia was the sanctioning of three top officials of the Weah led-administration and two Senators under the Magnitsky Act of the United States Treasury Department on August 15, 2022.

But addressing a team of journalists Tuesday, March 28, 2023 at his U.S. Embassy in Monrovia, McCarthy maintained that he will continue to serve until the process leading to his replacement is successfully done.

“I am not planning of leaving anytime soon, my successor has been nominated, and that is the start of a long process, we don’t know when the new ambassador will come, but I will be here for the time being”, McCarthy said
