The third female chief judge appointed to Liberia

Judge Sie-A-Nyene Gyapay Yuoh has been appointed as the new chief justice by the Liberian senate. Francis Saye Korkpor, who retired this month after attaining the constitutional retirement age of 70, is replaced by her. In the 175 years of Liberia’s history, Justice Yuoh becomes the third female chief justice and the first since 2003.

Regarding her age, the judiciary has not commented on it. 

Exactly 13 months before the upcoming presidential and general elections, she rises to the top of the judicial hierarchy.
