APC Resumes Participation in Tripartite Committee


The All Peoples Congress (APC) Party has formally resumed its participation in the Tripartite Committee, a pivotal decision taken despite ongoing challenges and perceived lack of cooperation from both the Sierra Leone People's Party (SLPP) government and the Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL). This significant move, announced on the 18th of June 2024, underscores the APC's unwavering commitment to electoral justice and the preservation of democratic processes within the nation.



The APC has consistently raised concerns regarding the conduct of the ECSL, citing instances where baseless justifications have been employed to conceal alleged electoral malpractices following the June 24th, 2023 elections. The party's grievances center around the refusal of the ECSL and the SLPP government to produce or verify disaggregated data from the elections, an act described as both cold and contemptuous. In a press release, the APC expressed its belief that this reluctance to provide crucial data may indicate a deliberate attempt to obscure discrepancies or inconsistencies in the figures previously announced by ECSL Chairman Mohamed Konneh.



Furthermore, the APC has highlighted evidence of alleged over-voting and other irregularities, contributing to the widespread belief among stakeholders that the election results were manipulated. The party remains steadfast in its determination to seek truth and justice despite the challenges posed by the ECSL and its partners.


Despite facing alleged resistance and obstruction from the SLPP government, the APC maintains its resolve in pursuing transparency and accountability. Following consultations with mediators from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union (AU), who visited the party office on the same day, the APC confirms its continued engagement in the Tripartite Committee's proceedings with the aim of presenting a conclusive report.
