Liberia Runoff Election - ‘Unofficial’ Result Puts George Weah In The Lead

Provisional results gathered from various polling places in the just ended Liberia Presidential runoff elections shows the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) presidential candidate, Senator George Weah has received overwhelming votes from electorates against that of the ruling Unity Party (UP) presidential candidate, Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai.

The National Elections Commission (NEC) has disclosed that provisional results of the runoff elections will be released at its headquarter later today.

Meanwhile, the Liberia National Police has cautioned the general public to desist from early celebrations and calling the elections for any of the candidates and patiently wait for NEC which is the official electoral body to declare a winner.

This will be the first time for about 70years that Liberians will witness a transfer of power from one elected leader to another.

Outgoing President Sirleaf has praised a violence-free electoral process, saying that "the ballot box has replaced bullets and electoral disputes are settled through the courts"
