Daily Trust reports that former Vice President of Liberia and candidate of the Unity Party, Joseph Boakai, is contesting against incumbent President Georg Weah, after the first round of the election held on October 10 with 20 candidates could not produce any winner with the requisite over 50 percent required to emerge president.

“Similarly, the Mission urges the candidates, their political alliances, and supporters to be guided by the spirit of national unity, peace, and stability, and adhere to the expressed commitments made within the framework of the Revised Farmington River Declaration.

“In this regard, the Mission appeals to all stakeholders to refrain from any acts of incitement that would undermine the peace. It also calls on the security agents to maintain professionalism in the execution of their duties for the maintenance of order in the country,” Jega said.
