-Ahead of Liberia Presidential Election Runoff
Former Ghanaian international footballer, Michael Essien has expressed best wishes for Liberia’s football legend, George Weah, of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) as he prepares to battle Vice President Joseph Boakai of the Unity Party in the expected runoff elections.

As top finishers in the disputed October 10 elections, Weah and Boakai will face each other at the polls any time, as Liberia finds successor to the departing President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
Last week, the Supreme Court lifted the ‘Stay Order’ it had placed on the runoff elections on grounds that evidence produced by the appellants Liberty Party and Unity Party were not enough to render the election null and void, let alone they merit a re-run.
The Court mandated the National Elections Commission (NEC) to set a new day for the runoff election between Weah and Boakai.
It also ordered the Commission to clean up the final voter roll- FRR- and take other remedial actions before the conduct of the runoff elections.
The Commission is yet to respond to the Court’s ruling, to announce a new day for the runoff and other attending measures.
Ahead of these electoral processes, Essein who played for Chelsea in England just as Weah, has sent a good luck message to Sen. Weah.
Weah is the only known former African world-class footballer turned politician vying for the presidency of his country.
It is highly likely, according to experts, that this could pave the way for other former successful footballers to challenge for the presidency of their respective nations.
Liberty Party's standard-bearer, Cllr. Charles Brumskine, who came third in the first round, had challenged the result, citing massive frauds and irregularities.
