ICPNC invites foreign mediators for a proposed round table with APC and Government of Sierra Leone

Following the report presented to President Julius Maada Bio, the Independent Commission for Peace and National Cohesion believes there is still need for further engagements with aggrieved players and election management bodies for an advanced cohesiveness.

Hawa Samai Executive secretary for Independent commission for peace and national cohesion during her update on post election peace, at the Ministry of Information and Civic Education’s weekly press briefing, confirmed that after consultation with the government of Sierra Leone and All peoples Congress Party, the commission is expected to hold a round table with both parties in the presence of International communities such as the Commonwealth, African Union and ECOWAS, as demanded by the aggrieved party.

This decision she emphasized came after a series of intra engagements as stipulated within their mandate.

It could be recalled that the main opposition All People’s Congress party did not yield to defeat after the June 24th general election in Sierra Leone and thus declined from participating in all facets of governance as a party with some demands made. Amongst which was for a rerun of the election within six months after June.

Many analysts continue to ask critical questions of the fate of Sierra Leone’s democracy and national stability if final resolutions are not met after this “AUGUST MEETING”.
