Former VP and current opposition candidate of the Unity Party, Joseph Boakai,, continues sailing marginally with 86.71% of the run-off results announced at 4.30pm today by NEC.
Boakai polled 712,741, representing 50.58%, while incumbent Weah polled 696,520, representing 49.42%, a margin.
of 16,221 votes.
The results today are from 5,107 out of 5,890 poling places, representing 86.71%.
With 16,221 votes differential and outstanding 13.29% vote counting remaining.
Only by divine intervention or massive votes from Weah’s remaining 13.29%, if possible, can change the trend.
Huge votes remain to be announced today in Montserrado county, where incumbent Weah has a strong hold. Montserrado is the key battle ground.
This new development can go either way before end of the day.
The incumbent isn’t technically out. There are still some 215,939 ballots representing 13.28% of the total votes to be counted. Considering the voting trends, I don’t think it is difficult to overturn 16,000 votes lead.
