Liberian president George Weah will face Political Veteran Joseph Boakai in a presidential election run-off on Tuesday. Weah Won the first round by a narrow margin but is now neck and neck with Boakai. Weah won the previous election in 2017 with high hopes of fighting poverty and developing infrastructure, but has faced criticism for not delivering on his promises. He has formed alliances with local leaders, including a former warlord, while Boakai is a political veteran and former vice-president. There are concerns about the potential for violence in a country still recovering from two civil wars.
