MONROVIA - Former soccer star George Weah leads in early presidential election results in 10 of Liberia's 15 voting regions, National Elections Commission Chairman Jerome G. Korkoya said on Thursday.

The two top vote-winners from the field of 20 candidates will advance to a run-off in November in the event that no one wins an outright majority.
