NEC Qualifies All Candidates

Liberia’s final list of candidates for the West African nation’s October elections has been published with 16 candidates vying for the presidential seat. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who took power nearly six years ago, is among the three female presidential candidates.

Sirleaf’s main contender is fellow Harvard University graduate Winston Tubman from the Congress for Democratic Change and ex-soccer star George Weah. Nearly 1,000 candidates are vying for seats in Liberia’s Senate and House of Representatives. Election Commission Chairman James Fromoyan on Friday said ballots are being printed in Ghana and South Africa. 1.7 million people are registered for the Oct. 11 vote, Liberia’s second since the end of a 14-year civil war in 2003.
