Liberia Elections Run-off Voting to Elect a new President

Voting in the run-off elections to elect a new president in Liberia is underway. Polls opened across Libeira from 8am with voting turn very low compared to the first round of elections.

The run-off is between the incumbent Vice-President Joseph Boakai of the Unity Party (UP) and former international footballer George Weah of the Congress for Democratic Change (CD)

This round of voting was delayed from the original date of November 7 when Charles Brumskine of the Liberty Party (LP) who placed third in the October 10 Presidential elections claiming it flawed with "massive fraud and irregularities". He called for a total re-run of the elections. However, the Supreme Court of Liberia ruled that there was not enough evidence to merit a re-run.

Mr Weah, won the first round, but did not secure the required 50%+1 of the vote for an outright victory.

More than two million people are eligible to cast their ballots.
