Liberia votes in presidential election

50

Liberia conducted the first elections solely managed by the country’s own institutions since the civil war on October 10.

Ex-football star George Weah and Vice-President Joseph Boakai are the main competitors among the  20 presidential candidates contesting to succeed Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first elected female leader, who is completing two terms.

Previous two elections were managed by the UN, which, this time takes a back seat, allowing Liberia’s own election commission and police to take over the conduct.
