OFFICIAL: George Weah Wins Liberia’s Presidential Election

Former football superstar George Weah has won Liberia’s presidential run-off, the country’s Election Commission said on Thursday.

Weah has beaten his opponent Vice-President Joseph Boakai, the 1995 World Footballer of the Year winning 61.5 percent of the votes based on 98.1 percent of ballots cast.

After processing 98.1% of results from polling units, Weah got 720,033 votes (61.5%) and Boakai got 457,088 votes (38.5%), according to Liberia’s National Election Commission.

Sean’s lead is unassailable and he will be officially declared the President-elect after 100 per cent of the votes have been collated.

George, who played for AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain in a glittering football career, will succeed Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as Liberia’s president next month.
