One of Liberia's main parties calls for halt to election results

Although footballer George Weah is being touted on social media as the new president of Liberia, the nation's electoral body is yet to announce the election results officially.

In the presidential post, the former footballer will replace Nobel Laureate for Peace in 2011, Ellen Johnson Surley, who has won two six-year terms. 2,183,683 people registered to vote and the elections body reports of a high turnout.

Twenty presidential candidates are vying for a majority in the first round of elections, while almost 1,000 candidates from 26 parties fight for 73 seats in the House of Representatives.

In 2005 George Wea again ran for president, but then remained second in the vote, after Surley. Voters commended her leadership, but also said they are ready for change when they lined up for Tuesday's historic vote. Sirleaf is a United Methodist and the first female head of state in Africa.

Worldwide observers said Tuesday's vote went smoothly despite late starts in some counties. The turnout was impressive, especially among the younger generations, said Christopher Fomunyoh, of the U.S. funded National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, which is monitoring the elections.
