In this video by Reuters, the latest update on Sierra Leone’s presidential election is discussed. According to the country’s electoral commission, incumbent president Julius Maada Bio is leading the vote count with 60 percent of votes tallied so far. His biggest rival, Samura Kamara of the opposition All People’s Congress, is trailing behind.
However, this election has been marred by claims of a lack of transparency and violence. International observers have voiced concerns about the transparency of the ballot process, and lawyer Augustine Suri Sengbay Mara emphasizes the need for the commission to address these suspicions and ensure a transparent accounting and results publication process.
The tension surrounding this election is evident, with reports of attacks and intimidation against election representatives of the opposition APC in three districts on Election Day. This tense atmosphere has raised fears of further unrest, especially if none of the candidates secures 55 percent of the votes cast, triggering a runoff.
Stay updated on the Sierra Leone presidential election as the election commission is expected to announce a verified result within the next 48 hours.
