Cllr. Gongloe, who last week pledged support to the Presidential bid of Vice President Joseph Boakai, claimed that (Boakai) was the best candidate in the race and that opposing Weah’s Presidential bid is based on the fact that Weah has not prepared himself to serve as President of this post-conflict country. The National Elections Commission (NEC) last week announced November 7, 2017 as the date for the run-off Presidential elections Vice President Boakai and Senator Weah. NEC reported that out of the total of over 2 million voters registered to vote in the October Presidential and Legislative polls, George Weah scooped 596,037 of the total votes cast earning him 38 percent while VP Boakai bagged 446, 716 putting at 28 percent of the votes cast so far.
None of the two men was able to secure a 50 percent plus 1 vote to declare him a winner of the elections as required by law hereby prompting the run-off of the Presidential elections to determine a winner. source/frontpageafrica
