Inter-Religious Council and Independent Commission for Peace engages APC

The All People's Congress (APC) held separate meetings with the Inter-Religious Council of Sierra Leone and the Independent Commission for Peace and National Cohesion on August 14 and 15, 2023, in response to calls for dialogue to resolve the ongoing impasse between the ruling government and the main opposition party.

During the meetings, the institutions expressed their desire to understand the APC's grievances firsthand. The APC reiterated that its concerns are well-known and stressed the importance of honest and open dialogue to find a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

Transparency, accountability, and respect for democratic processes were key points emphasized by the APC during the discussions. The party highlighted the challenges it has faced, including alleged violations of rights and marginalization of its members in the political landscape.

The APC also emphasized the significance of inclusive governance, national unity, and the promotion of peace and stability in Sierra Leone. Both parties agreed on the need for meaningful dialogue and expressed their commitment to finding common ground.

On August 16, 2023, the National Advisory Committee (NAC) of the APC convened a meeting to discuss the subjects of the aforementioned meetings and presented their resolutions in a press release.

The party maintains that its position of non-participation in governance remains unchanged.

Further meetings have been planned to delve deeper into the issues raised and explore potential solutions.
