Mr. Cooper noted that one of the main objectives for this year’s pageant is to conduct a process that is free, fair and transparent as possible that allows all Liberians to have an input on who should be crowned as the country’s next Queen. He said the theme for this year’s Miss Liberia is: “Celebrating Liberia, its Culture and Tourism.” He continued that it has been alleged that in Liberian pageantry, there are instances of cheating, but stressed that the host wants to make sure that accountability and transparency are the hallmark of the pageant going forward. “Miss Liberia is one of the events in Liberia that is national in nature; we have the County Meet and Miss Liberia, where all 15 counties participate,” Mr. Cooper explained. “In order for Miss Liberia and the contestants to have credibility and the full support of all Liberians, the process has to be free, fair and transparent“, he reiterates.
