Liberia 2017 Election: Polls Close In Presidential Vote
Local Editor

Voting wrapped up in Liberia, where a runoff election was already expected because of the high number of presidential candidates.

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Observers reported long lines at many polling stations at closing time.

With 20 people running for the West African nation's highest office, analysts do not believe anyone will win outright with just over 50 percent of the vote.

The election marks the end of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's tenure. The Nobel Peace Prize winner was Africa's first female president and helped the country rebuild from years of civil war and the devastating Ebola crisis.

Among the front-runners are Vice President Joseph Boaka and former international soccer star George Weah.

Meanwhile, many of the more than 2.1 million voters are calling for a president who will improve the economy and access to electricity.

Liberia's health system was decimated by Ebola, a challenge for Nobel Prize-winning President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who also led Liberia's transition from a 14-year civil war.
