To the best of my knowledge, Liberia’s NEC has not made any unofficial announcement yet. Results are to be announced tomorrow. That notwithstanding, poll watchers have taken photos of sample ballots and posted them on social media. The trend is clearly in overwhelmingly in Weah’s favor in most counties.
Turnout was way way down.
Approximately what percentage of the vote do you think each candidate will end up with? I think it will be in the ballpark of 59 - 41 in Weah’s favor.

My prediction was 2.5% off NEC numbers

Congratulations to President Weah and the Liberian people for having the courage to embrace change. More importantly, many congratulations to the Liberian National Electrical Commission for overseeing an election which resulted in a change of government, a rare thing in African politics.

DMK, recently I have been thinking about how often there are changes in political party in power in African countries. It seems that it is quite common in West Africa. Examples: Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Ghana, Nigeria, Cote D’Ivoire, Gambia, Liberia...and we’ll see if that trend continues in Salone next year
