It's Weah vs Liberian VP in runoff election

Update: George Weah Continues To Lead Polls In Liberia's Election Liberia: George Weah takes early lead in Liberia's elections

Former global footballer George Weah and Liberia's Vice President Joseph Boakai will face a runoff for the presidency on November 7, the national election commission announced Sunday.

The Liberian electoral commission gave Weah 39.2 percent of the vote, compared to Boakai's 29.6 percent.

Jerome Korkoya, chairman of the national election commission, announced this on Sunday. "Our son Weah will be the next president".

Boakai, the former head of Liberia's petroleum refinery company and agriculture minister, has served as Liberia's vice president since 2006 and represents the ruling Unity Party.

Both candidates are well short of the 50 percent barrier required to win the presidency outright from the first round of voting held on Tuesday.

The county was won by Charles Walker Brumskine, the opposition leader and candidate of Liberty Party with 10,350 votes. If no candidate receives an absolute majority, then there will be a run-off election between the two candidates who received the most votes.

Brumskine has so far received 144,359 votes (9.8%), while Cummings has received 104,127 votes (7.1%) and PYJ gets 102,564 votes (7.0%).

The latest results represent about 95 percent of all ballots cast.

The final certified results from last Tuesday's poll must be announced by October 25, although provisional results from the remaining precincts are expected in the coming days. However, many Liberians complain about poor public services and widespread corruption and say they are eager for a new president. Inside the place, representatives may not communicate with voters in any way.

Weah of the Congress for Democratic Change, CDC, led other candidates in 11 out of the 15 counties that constitute Liberia in the results released so far.
