Former footballer George Weah held a commanding 39.2 lead in provisional first-round results made available by Liberia’s elections commission on Saturday (October 14).

The country’s Vice President Joseph Boakai came a close second with 29.6 percent of the votes after ballots had been cast from nearly three-quarters of polling places.

This means that the two men will probably face off against each other in the second round next month.

In a distant third place Charles Brumskine, a lawyer, won 9.7 percent of the votes.
