  Weah Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey , former soccer player and presidential candidate of Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), reacts while a speech during the party's presidential campaign rally at Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Monrovia, Liberia


Former soccer star George Weah has won Liberia's presidential run-off election and will succeed incumbent Ellen Johnson Sirleaf next month, the country's first democratic transition in over 70 years.


With 98.1 percent of the vote counted, Weah led with 61.5 percent to Vice President Joseph Boakai's 38.5 percent Kendell Beckwith Jersey , National Elections Commission Chairman Jerome Korkoyah told reporters in the capital Monrovia on Thursday.


At his party headquarters outside Monrovia, tears streamed down Weah's face as he greeted supporters from a balcony. Below, hundreds of young people sang and danced to a live performance of Hipco, Liberian hip hop music popular with the country's impoverished youth.


"Success for George Weah is victory for the whole country," a 47-year-old engineer named Randall Zarkpah said as he walked home with his young son through streets ringing with honking car horns and loud cheers as dusk fell.


"When you feel sick for some time and you receive proper medication - that is how I feel now. He will be good for our country. He is King George!"


Weah grew up in Clara Town slum in Monrovia and went on to become the only African to win FIFA World Player of the Year Chris Godwin Jersey , starring for AC Milan, Paris St Germain and Chelsea.


His popularity at home fueled a previous run for president, in 2005. He won the first round then but lost the second round to Johnson Sirleaf, whom he will now succeed.


His rags-to-riches story helped him tap into dissatisfaction with Johnson Sirleaf's 12-year tenure. She drew a line under years of civil war but drew criticism for failing to root out corruption or persistent poverty.


"My fellow Liberians, I deeply feel the emotion of all the nation Justin Evans Jersey ," Weah wrote on Twitter after the results were announced. "I measure the importance and the responsibility of the immense task which I embrace today. Change is on."


Weah's critics, however, say he has offered few concrete policy proposals. His choice of running mate has also raised eyebrows: Jewel Howard-Taylor, the ex-wife of Charles Taylor, a former president of Liberia who is serving 50 years in a British prison for war crimes in neighboring Sierra Leone.


"I think Weah is not fit for the work. He will see it O. J. Howard Jersey ," said Anthony Mason, 34, who had huddled around radios at the headquarters of Boakai's Unity Party for the results.


Weah looked set to sweep 14 of Liberia's 15 counties in the run-off. Turnout in Tuesday's vote stood at 56 percent, the election commission said.


Earlier on Thursday, Boakai said he doubted that the vote was "free Carlton Davis Jersey , fair and transparent", without elaborating. He did not say whether he might challenge the eventual result.


The second round was delayed by more than a month after the third-place finisher in October's first round, backed by Boakai, alleged fraud. The Supreme Court ultimately rejected the challenge.


The U.S.-based Carter Center and National Democratic Institute said on Thursday there were notable improvements in the handling of the run-off, echoing positive assessments from other international observers.


Founded by freed U.S. slaves in 1847 M.J. Stewart Jersey , Liberia is Africa's oldest modern republic. But the last democratic transfer of power occurred in 1944, a military coup took place in 1980 and a 14-year civil war ended only in 2003.

West Brom captain Jonny Evans is set to leave next month after the club failed to persuade the Northern Ireland defender to sign a new contract.


Evans has 18 months on his present deal and it's understood he has no intention of extending his stay at the Hawthorns.


Manchester City, Arsenal and Leicester all expressed interest in the former Manchester United man in the summer.


The West Brom boss at the time, Tony Pulis, refused to do business because he did not have a replacement.


Despite the arrival of Alan Pardew Ronald Jones II Jersey , Evans, 29, has still not signed a new deal.


Unless that situation changes, it is understood West Brom will listen to offers, although given Evans' contract position Vita Vea Jersey , it is highly unlikely they will get the £30m fee it was hoped they would receive in the summer.


Pardew said: "I think you have to be realistic in these situations. Jonny is a top player, other clubs were interested in him in the summer. We know that and he knows that, we have to be intelligent and straightforward dealing with it.


"He is under contract for West Brom. He knows he can have those conversations [about a new deal] with us.


"We will give him the best deal we can possibly go to on the financial side and length of contract, but that might not be the whole thing with Jonny."


West Brom are on a club record 17-game winless run in all competitions and Pulis lost his job in November.


Pardew is yet to win in four matches and has told the players, given their position in the table Cheap Buccaneers Hats , they cannot have a Christmas party.


The Baggies did host a squad Christmas lunch at the training ground on Thursday but Pardew is against the idea of a party.


"I said to the players when I arrived I don't think Christmas parties are appropriate in the position we're in. So the staff haven't had a party and the players haven't had a party," he said.(Agencies)
