Former World Best Footballer, George Weah Wins Liberia Presidential Election

Share

Retired professional footballer turned politician, George Tawlon Manneh Oppong Ousman Weah, has reportedly won the Liberia Presidential election.

Liberia's provisional election results are expected Thursday, the election commission said Wednesday, as the West African nation waits to see who will succeed the Nobel Peace Prize victor who led the country's recovery from Ebola and civil war.

"The Liberty Party is deeply troubled by the discovery of numerous incidents of irregularities and fraud that occurred during the elections", Liberty Party national chairman Benjamin Sanvee said in a statement.

The AU and ECOWAS made several recommendations about the electoral process including the need for a review of the electoral register which accounted for long winding queues on voting day, as well as adequate training for election staff.

The NEC said it was unclear what fraudulent complaints the Liberty Party was referring to or if the commission believed they happened since there were no specific complaints from the party.

On election day, materials including ballot boxes arrived late in some locations and some people struggled to find their names on voter rolls, witnesses said, but there was so far no evidence that this was linked to illicit activity.
