Supporters of former world Footballer of the Year, George Weah are already jubilating ahead of the official declaration of the Liberian presidential runoff election on Thursday.

The National Elections Commission (NEC) of Liberia said on Wednesday that it would announce the result of the Tuesday election on Thursday.

The runoff was between Weah and incumbent Vice President, Mr Joseph Boakai. The winner will succeed President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf next month.

Spokesman of the commission, Mr Henry Flomo said tallying of votes was ongoing at different centres across the country.

Flomo said the commission did not schedule a press conference for Wednesday at 11 am as widely reported in the local media, and regretted any inconveniences the misinformation might have caused.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Liberians are eagerly awaiting announcement of the official results by NEC, which is warning parties and the media against declaring unofficial results.

However, preliminary results trickling in from collation centres across the country through radio stations indicate that Weah is in early lead.

As of the time of filing this report at 7:30 pm Liberian time (1930 GMT), Weah was ahead in three counties of Bomi, Margibi and Grand Bassa, with over 50 percent of the votes processed so far.

Reports from different parts of the country indicate that supporters of Weah are already celebrating his purported victory.

Meanwhile, the Economic Community of West African States Election Observation Mission to Liberia has urged NEC to “work diligently and expedite action on the proclamation of results to avoid creating anxiety within the polity.”

Head of the mission and former President of Ghana, Mr John Mahama made the call at a press conference in Monrovia on Wednesday evening.

He also emphasised the need for the electoral umpire to conduct the concluding part of the process with “fairness, openness and transparency until the proclamation of results.” (NAN)
