Liberian presidential candidate George Weah's running mate, Jewel Howard-Taylor, began life in politics as first lady to former warlord leader Charles Taylor, but has since established a formidable political reputation in her own right.
African football legend, George Weah, has been confirmed the victor of Liberia's presidential election.
The country's electoral commission said the former world player of the year had taken 61.5 per cent of the vote from 98.1 per cent of ballots cast.
The election commission said voter turnout was 56 percent - lower than the October 10 election in which Boakai and Weah were the top vote-getters, qualifying them for the runoff election.
Weah supporters paraded through the streets of the capital Monrovia and honked auto horns to celebrate the news.
It's imperative that the loser, outgoing Deputy President Joe Boakai, accept defeat and allow Liberia's first peaceful transition of power since 1944.
Weah, who also won FIFA World Player of the Year in 1995 and Afircan Player of the Year three times, won 12 of the 15 counties during the election, according to The Mirror.
He ran as part of Congress for Democratic Change in 2014 and was elected to the senate.
An estimated 250,000 people died during back-to-back civil wars in Liberia and the exiled Taylor is now serving a 50-year sentence in HMP Frankland in Durham, for war crimes in neighbouring Sierra Leone.
He entered politics after his retirement from the game in 2002 and is now a senator in Liberia's parliament.
Liberia, founded by freed USA slaves in the 19th Century, was praised by United Nations secretary-general, António Guterres, who hailed the "peaceful conduct" of the vote.
