Weah's camp cries foul

It would be nice to get through an election in Africa where the elections (and the campaign) are fair, the winning side is magnanimous and the losing side concedes graciously. I was hoping the internationally-run elections in Liberia would differ from the trend. Sadly, Tuesday's presidential runoff looks more like same old, same old, despite elections that were widely praised.

No need to guess who's in the lead.

It happened in Ghana and Somaliland. You're right, though - not too many other places. It'll take time to work the rough edges off democracy.
