Tallying of ballots begins in Liberia

Liberians shelter themselves from a heavy downpour at a polling center in Monrovia during the national elections on 11 October.

Despite the rain, voters in Liberia lined up in the capital Monrovia and other areas of the country on Tuesday to vote for a new president and members of parliament.

It is the first time that Liberians have organized and managed the elections themselves since the end of a 14 year civil war in 2003.

According to the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), polling stations opened on time and the voting process was peaceful.

To find out more about how the elections went, Derrick Mbatha called the spokesperson of UNMIL in Liberia's capital, Monrovia.
