  • Voters lined up at a polling center in Grand Bassa County

The former Fifa World Footballer of the Year has long turned a politician with aspiration to be Liberia's President.

False reports of Mr Weah's victory have been circulating on social media but it is not clear why Wenger thought he had won. He campaigned successfully for senate in 2014. Global observers say Tuesday's vote went smoothly despite late starts in some counties.

Mr Weah was among 20 presidential candidates in Tuesday's election. A second shot as a running mate to William Tubman in 2011 also missed the mark as Sirleaf's Unity Party garnered 530,020 votes while the CDC earned 394,370 votes.

If eventually confirmed as victor of the presidential election, George Weah has an onerous task of stepping into Sirleaf's shoes. Sirleaf is a United Methodist and the first female head of state in Africa.

The Best African footballer of all time, played for the Thunder of Yaoundé (Cameroon), AS Monaco of Arsène Wenger, Paris-Saint-Germain, AC Milan, Chelsea, Manchester City and Olympique de Marseille, and has a pretty good reputation in Liberia.

The Liberty Party, whose candidate Charles Brumskine was considered a front-runner to take over from Nobel Peace Prize victor and outgoing leader, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, said it would consider taking legal action if the National Elections Commission (NEC) did not act on its demands.

Their results will be declared later, Korkoya said on Thursday. "If NEC does not cooperate with our request, we will take the appropriate legal action". He did not give specific evidence of voter fraud, according to Reuters. It is yet to be seen what significant effect such incidents had on the general conduct of the election.
