ECOWAS Gives #SierraLeone Elections Thumbs Up

 The ECOWAS Election Observation Mission in a Preliminary Declaration has classified Sierra Leone’s March 7 general elections as generally peaceful and credible. In a nine pager document read by Prof Amos Sawyer, Liberia’s former Interim President at a press conference in Freetown, results showed that processes towards and during elections were free, fair and credible with only few challenges recorded. 

Amongst such challenges were the presence of heavily armed military men at collation centres of the opposition SLPP and the ban of vehicles that made citizens walk long distances to polling stations. All these challenges were amicably resolved with no adverse effects.
The Mission also promised to monitor closely all phases of the electoral process, including the transmission of results and supporting materials to the National Tallying Centre, as well as the processing and declaration of provisional results. The team advised the National Electoral Commission (NEC) to release results on presidential, parliamentary and local council polls as soon as possible cautioning against declaring unofficial results.
The ECOWAS Mission then called on all candidates and their supporters to continue to respect due process and the rule of law, and also urged them to use only legal means to seek redress of any grievances emanating from the electoral process.”
