According to the report on BBC, there was a huge turnout of voters at different polling units despite the heavy rain during Liberia’s election, which took place yesterday.
This year’s election is very significant because it is the second since the end of a 14-year civil war in the country.
Meanwhile, Al Jazeera’s correspondent, Yvonne Ndege, reporting from the capital, Monrovia, noted that around 4,000 polling stations across the country had opened on time of the voting exercise and there had been no reports of disorganisation or violence.
The election is between incumbent President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, 72; Winston Tubman, 70, who is a former UN envoy and a nephew of an ex-president; and 14 others.
