The future of Liberia's Nobel Peace prize-winning President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, was thrown into doubt yesterday, when all major opposition parties rejected the presidential elections as fraudulent.

The votes, cast earlier this month, are still being counted, although preliminary results showed Mrs Sirleaf with 45.5 per cent. She was awarded this year's Nobel Prize for her role in stabilising Liberia after a 14-year civil war.
