BREAKING: Liberia’s NEC schedules presidential runoff for Dec 26


The runoff in Liberia’s presidential elections will be held on December 26, the country’s electoral overseer announced on Tuesday, clearing a final hurdle in a protracted saga.

“I am pleased to announce that the 2017 presidential runoff elections will be conducted on Tuesday December 26, 2017,” the president of the National Elections Commission (NEC), Jerome Korkoya, said.

The Supreme Court last Thursday ordered the commission to proceed with the vote after it was delayed for a month by fraud complaints.
