Football Legend George Weah And Joseph Boakai To Contest Liberia’s Presidential Runoff

Liberia’s electoral commission on Sunday, announced that former footballer, George Weah and incumbent Vice-President, Joseph Boakai, will face each other in a runoff vote for the presidency in November.





National Elections Commission chairman, Jerome Korkoya, told journalists that 1,550,923 votes had been counted and turnout was at 74.52%.


Weah has taken 39.0% of the votes and Boakai 29.1%. This left both candidates well short of the 50% mark required to be declared outright winner, from the first round of voting held on Tuesday.


Three other candidates took a significant share of votes, with veteran opposition leader, Charles Brumskine, at 9.8%; former Coca-Cola executive, Alexander Cummings, at 7.1%; and former-warlord-turned-preacher, Prince Johnson, at 7.0%.
