Public concern on whether the Supreme Court will allow either a runoff or rerun of the October 10 presidential and legislative elections, is expected to be settled today in a judgment by the Full Bench of the Supreme Court. If the decision goes to the contrary, that is a rerun, it will mean that President Sirleaf will find it difficult to transition, and maybe the Supreme Court will come up with an alternative. Today’s ruling will be the last time that the Supreme Court will intervene in matters regarding the October 10 presidential and legislative elections. A lawyer for the commission, Alexander Zoe, asked the court to dismiss the petition and allow the runoff to proceed. “That was suspended, and in some cases, the materials already in transit as of the time the court order came were recalled to the commission’s warehouses,” he explained after the court order.
