Liberia mourns former interim president

former Liberian interim leader, Ruth Perry. She died on January 8, 2017

In 1996, when infighting and power struggle dogged the Liberian peace process, the mediating West African leaders turned to Liberian women to lead a warring factions  dominated collective presidency.

Former Grand Cape Mount Senator Ruth Sando Perry, was chosen to chair the Council of state. She led the council from September 3, 1996 to August 2, 1997, when she transitioned power to the newly elected President Charles Taylor.

Mrs. Perry died on Sunday at the home of her son, Ralph, in Columbus, Ohio. Family members described her passing as peaceful, though the cause of death has not been stated. However, family sources said she has been illed for a long time. She was 77.

A school teacher by profession, Perry came to prominence following the 1986 elections in Liberia when she won a seat in the Liberian Senate as candidate of Unity Party representing Grand Cape Mount..

Many of the opposition members who won legislative seats decided not to participated in the government at the urging of their parties because they believed President Samuel Doe cheated to win the elections.

The current Liberian President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, was one of the opposition members who refused to take office as Senator elect for Montserrado County. But Mrs. Perry of Unity Party and Tuan Wreh of the Liberia Action Party broke ranks with their respective parties to accept their seats in the Liberian Senate.

Mrs. Perry said at the time that she was participating in the government to fix it from within.

It is not yet clear if her remains will be transported to Liberia for burial.
