George Weah set to win Liberia presidency

Rajoy demands clarity from Catalan leader

Former footballer George Weah is set to become Liberia’s president following Tuesday’s run-off election.

The National Elections Commission said that with 98.1% of ballots counted, Mr Weah had won 61.5% of the vote.

Opponent Joseph Boakai is far behind with 38.5%.

Mr Weah, 51, won the first round in October with 38.4% of the vote, compared with the 28.8% of Mr Boakai, 73. His failure to secure an outright majority forced a run-off.
