ECSL pays off 1,800 Locality Electoral Education Committee members

The Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL) has announced the completion of payment for Locality Electoral Education Committee members (LEECs)for services rendered for a thirty-five day period, across the country.

According to credible sources of this platform, these members comprised town criers, women’s groups, people with disabilities(PWDs) and youth groups who were employed to roll out community sensitization on the electoral process relating to dates, centres and election related crimes. These messages were mostly prerecorded and disseminated to them but also included short points related to topics mentioned above.

However, the commission has an outstanding payment to ninety-two thousand(92,000) station and center staff who worked during the elections. These were staff stationed across eleven thousand, eight hundred and thirty-two(11,832) polling stations.
