Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (born 29 October 1938) is the 24th and current President of Liberia. She served as Minister of Finance under President William Tolbert from 1979 until the 1980 coup d'A(C)tat, after which she left Liberia and held senior positions at various financial institutions.

Sirleaf's father later became the first Liberian from an indigenous ethnic group to sit in the country's national legislature.
