Cliff-hanger polls too close to call Analysts
By John Eche
Two former presidents of West African nations, John Mahama of Ghana and Goodluck Jonathan are among a battery of observers who are presently in Liberia to monitor Tuesday’s critical presidential run-off polls in Liberia.
While Mahama is undertaking his observer services at the behest of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, Jonathan is on the field as an agent of the National Democratic Institute of the United States of America.
The contest is between former international, George Weah and serving Vice President, Joseph Boakai.
Meanwhile, the National Electoral Commission of Liberia has assured the nation of its preparedness for the poll, even as analysts continue to hazard that the outcome is yet too close to call, predicting a cliff-hanger exercise.
Outgoing President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has been in power for 12 years.
