The final declared results by NEC indicated that the two leading presidential candidates, George Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and Joseph Boakai of the Unity Party (UP) polled 38.4 percent and 28.8 percent of the total valid votes cast respectively which implies that no candidate was able to attain the 50 percent plus one vote which is required for a winner to be declared.
