Liberian court says presidential run-off can go ahead

World Bulletin / News Desk

The Supreme Court of Liberia has ordered Thursday the National Elections Commission (NEC) to proceed with the scheduling of the presidential run-off election.

The court ruled the magnitude of the irregularities was not sufficient to impact the majority of polling areas.

Previously, Liberia’s Supreme Court had suspended the presidential run-off that was expected to take place Nov. 7 between former footballer George Weah and Vice President Joseph Boakai pending the NEC’s completion of the investigation into the Liberty Party’s complaints.

The Liberty Party candidate came in third.
