Ex - Monaco Player Wins Presidential Election In Liberia

The former Monaco striker, George Weah, has guaranteed triumph in the Liberian presidential run-off race.

Weah and Vice President Joseph Boakai are fighting to supplant Africa's initially chosen female president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, whose 12-year lead established peace in Liberia after the common war finished in 2003.

Decision officers, in a soccer stadium outside the capital Monrovia, on Wednesday started arranging vote aggregates from the nation's 15 areas after Tuesday's run-off.

In any case, Weah's camp said its own counts in view of results from individual surveying stations demonstrated him winning with around 70 percent of the vote.

Informal incomplete outcomes declared on neighborhood radio stations additionally demonstrated Weah ahead of the pack.

The decision commission said individuals should sit tight for official checks. A news gathering which had been relied upon to report early outcomes on Wednesday morning was delayed until the evening, with conclusive outcomes due on Thursday.
