The opposition Unity Party of former Vice President Joseph Boakai is said to be in the driver’s seat for now following Thursday’s progressive tally results which was officially released by the National Elections Commission. The results now shows that Unity Party as of November 16, 2023 maintained her lead with an increment in margin of 16,221 votes over the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change. The opposition following Thursday’s results won six Counties to include: Montserrado, Nimba, Lofa, Margibi,  Bomi and Grand Cape Mount. The results also shows that UP is consistently showing numerical strengths in Vote rich Nimba and Montserrado Counties over the ruling CDC. Unity Party as per the results have already won Bomi, Lofa and Margibi Counties whose polling places have been completed. At the same time, the Ruling Coalition for Democratic Change won eight of the fourteen Couties results released as of November 16, 2023 but are still struggling to climb top. According to the results, CDC won Bong County already whose results have been completed 100%. Moreover, the Ruling Party also maintains dominance in the South Eastern Region winning: Maryland, Grand Kru, Grand Gedeh, River Cess, Sinoe, River Gee and Grand Bassa Counties. Currently Partisans of the Unity Party are now celebrating with total votes obtained thus far as: 712,741 constituting 50.58% closely followed by the CDC with 696,520 constituting 49.42%. With over 783 polling  places left, 218 in Nimba and 207 in Montserrado Counties  following their consistent lead, the Unity Party are certain of taking state power while the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change will be relying on more votes and huge margins from South Eastern Liberia especially  Grand Bassa with 189 polling places left, Sinoe 38 polling places left, Grand Kru 28 polling places remaining , Grand Gedeh with 34 polling places left among others  to ensure that she retains state power. Meantime, the competitive election results are being so far announced under a peaceful atmosphere with no violence thus far as the two candidates, incumbent George Weah and opposition Joseph Boakai fingers are all crossed while their ears are very sharp to await the final results by the NEC to pronounced one of them as the winner and next President of Liberia.
