Almost all the results from Tuesday's poll have been counted, the election commission says.
As amended in Section 13 of the Campaign Finance Regulations, the post-election campaign finance report for candidates contesting the run-off Election shall be submitted fifteen (15) days after the official results of the run-off election are announced.
For a possible third time since multi-party elections were restored, Liberians will be revisiting the polls to decide on who becomes the country's next president in a run-off presidential election between the two candidates who have obtained the most number of votes from the October 10 polls.
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.
Three other candidates took a significant share of votes, with veteran opposition leader, Charles Brumskine, at 9.8 percent; former Coca-Cola executive, Alexander Cummings, at 7.1 percent; and former-warlord-turned-preacher, Prince Johnson, at 7.0 percent.
Out of 5,390 polling places throughout the country, 1,817 have now been processed, meaning 33.71 percent of the nation's votes has been processed.
Weah and Boakai had both predicted outright victory in the first round.
Weah and Boakai lead the 20-candidate field to succeed Nobel Peace Prize victor Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in what would be Liberia's first democratic transfer of power in more than 70 years. Weah came second here with 2873, while Boakai got 1089. He is viewed as one of the best African players as in 1995 he was named FIFA World Player of the Year and he's also won the Ballon d'Or.
Brumskine has said the vote was marred by fraud and that he would request a re-run of the vote.
