Former international footballer George Weah will run for president of Liberia for a second time.
He said he had the “vision” to transform the country.
Weah, who played for teams including Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan and Chelsea, was the highest-ranking African footballer in FIFA’s list of greatest players of the 20th century.
His previous presidential bid, in 2005, was defeated by current president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
Her second term in office will end in 2017 and under the country’s constitution she cannot run again.
