Dos relvados para a presidência da Libéria

Dos relvados para a presidência da Libéria”

Ex-jogador de futebol George Weah tem ampla vitória nas presidenciais da Libéria (resultados quase completos).

O governo da vencedora do Nobel da Paz Ellen Johnson Sirleaf cimentou a paz no país do oeste da África, após a guerra civil acabar em 2003. O resultado não foi divulgado oficialmente, mas ele venceu em 12 dos 15 condados do país, derrotando o atual vice-presidente, Joseph Bokai, no segundo turno. O craque deve assumir em 22 de janeiro um mandato de seis anos.

Naquelas que são consideradas as primeiras eleições verdadeiramente democráticas no país africano, que já viveu duas guerras civis, Weah, de 51 anos, já tinha vencido a primeira volta e na segunda bateu Joseph Boakai, antigo vice-presidente liberiano. Será a primeira transição democrática em mais de 70 anos neste país da África ocidental.

Clubes defendidos por Weah na carreira também parabenizaram o ex-atacante pela eleição presidencial.

Na capital, Monróvia, o ambiente é de festa e de emoção.

Note-se que esta foi a segunda vez que o ex-jogador concorreu à presidência da Libéria. Depois disso, Weah dedicou sua vida à política, sendo candidato a vice-presidente em 2011, ao lado de Winston Tubman, e, depois, sendo eleito para uma cadeira no Senado, em 2014.

O país tem 2,1 milhões de inscritos no colégio eleitoral.

O segundo turno das eleições, realizado na terça (26), foi adiado em mais de um mês após Boakai e outro candidato alegarem fraude no primeiro turno, em outubro, em um recurso que a Suprema Corte rejeitou neste mês.
