Sen. Weah rules out Formation of Interim Government in Liberia

Opposition politician and Montserrado County Senator, George Weah, says he rules out the possibility of an interim government in Liberia.

His comment comes amidst talks in some quarters of the establishment of interim government if the ongoing political crisis drags on or remains unresolved.

Speaking early Tuesday morning on the VOA daybreak Africa program, Mr. Weah said the speculations of an interim arrangement are pointless because Liberians are not at war.

Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court of Liberia placed a prohibition on the presidential runoff election earlier scheduled between VP Joseph Boakai of the ruling Unity Party and Senator George Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change.

The Supreme Court ruling to halt all electoral activities pending investigation was triggered by a complaint of irregularities and fraud filed by Cllr. Charles Brumskine.

Weah, political leader of the Coalition for Democratic Change or CDC, said he is optimistic a runoff election between his Party and the ruling Unity Party will be held soon.

Asked whether he will win if and when the runoff is reschedule, Weah told the VOA he will defeat Vice President Boakai no matter how many rounds the election goes.

National elections Commission or NEC is still hearing complaints of Liberty Party on electoral irregularities and fraud.
