Liberia's Ruling Party Challenges Poll Results

Published
Liberia's ruling party is challenging the results of the first round of presidential elections in which its candidate was the runner-up. The Unity Party along with two other parties have accused incumbent President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of interfering with the results of the October 10 election. The ruling party says she acted inappropriately by meeting privately with the election magistrates before the vote. The parties say they will still take part in the runoff election scheduled for November 7. But they hope the court could rule before then. The two horse race will be between Former footballer George Weah and Vice President Joseph Boakai.
