VP Boakai Tops 1st LHC Poll On 2017 Elections

MONROVIA, May 14 (LINA) – Vice President Joseph N. Boakai is the lead candidate in the first of a series of polls to be conducted by the Liberia Holding Consortium (LHC) surrounding the 2017 election.

The Principal of the LHC, Abdullai Kamara, said the poll considered key population areas in eight counties over a ten-day period.

The results showed Coalition for Democratic Change’s George Weah and Liberty Party’s Charles Brumskine came second and third from a list of seven candidates.

Using a sample space of 275 person, the results showed 29.45% of total respondents favoring VP Boakai, 22.18% for Weah and 16% for Brumskine.

The results further showed that respondents were significantly undecided on a choice for Vice President, as reflected by 23.27%, while Bong Senator Jewel H. Taylor was favored by 19.27%.

This segment of the poll required respondents to provide the name of their choice, said an LHC release.

The result showed potential county leads for various candidates, including Lofa and Margibi for Boakai; Montserrado, Bomi and Grand Gedeh for Weah; Bassa for Brumskine and Nimba for All Liberia Party’s Benoni Urey.

The results for Bong County showed Urey and VP Boakai on a tie.

While each county showed differences in expectations of the government, respondents generally cited their main concerns as education, health, jobs, roads, and agriculture.

The polls also collected a list of possible lawmaker that respondents find favorable per county.

According to the LHC, the next poll will be held at the end of May and will continue monthly until the elections.
