On Thursday, Liberia's Supreme Court summoned the country's electoral commission over a legal complaint backed by three political parties regarding the October 10 presidential election, causing a potential delay in a runoff vote.
The complaint was lodged by an opposition party and backed by the ruling party of presidential candidate and incumbent Vice-President Joseph Boakai.
Boakai is due to face former international footballer George Weah in the November 7 runoff vote, after none of the candidates won a majority of votes in October.
Ray White spoke to Simon Allison, Africa Editor Mail & Guardian, to find out what this means for the runoff.
