“…People of Sierra Leone deserve a transparent electoral process…” APC’s NSG Decries ECSL Threats to National Peace

One year after Julius Maada Bio was declared re-elected President of Sierra Leone, the Chief Electoral Commissioner of Electoral Commission Sierra Leone, (ECSL) in a press conference sounded very political in response to a query after the June 2023 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

Mohamed Kenewui Konneh, in flagrant disregard for transparency, has made it clear that it is not constitutional for ECSL to publish disaggregated data of the June 2023 election, saying they are compliant with the law despite concerns of both local and international observers about the transparency of the tabulation process.

In related developments, National Secretary General of the All Peoples Congress (APC) Party Lansana Dumbuya has observed with grave concern the statement of ECSL’s Chairman, saying the country’s current ECSL chairman’s recent statement is a threat to peace and tranquility of the country.


At the monthly parliamentary press conference on June 26th, 2024, NSG Dumbuya remarked the refusal of ECSL to be transparent has sparked significant controversy, undermining transparency and accountability in the electoral process.

The APC, he said, believes that releasing data as requested is crucial for ensuring the integrity and fairness of elections which is a key ingredient to democracy.

“The APC’s stance is rooted in the belief that the people of Sierra Leone deserve a transparent electoral process that accurately reflects their will,” NSG said, emphasizing that any attempt to obfuscate or manipulate the results would be unacceptable to the suffering masses who are already enduring significant hardships.

NSG added APC’s insistence on adherence to the tripartite committee’s recommendations underscores the party’s commitment to upholding democratic principles.

The NSG encourages ECSL to honor the tripartite committee’s request and release the disaggregated voter results promptly.

This move, he believes, is essential for maintaining public trust in the electoral process.

The APC Scribe is of the view that the failure of ECSL to address the concerns of the public could exacerbate tensions and jeopardize the peace and stability that Sierra Leoneans, over the years, have worked so hard to achieve.
