As 2023 presidential and general elections draw closer in Sierra Leone, there is little doubt the two main political parties – the ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) and the opposition All People’s Congress (APC) party will lock horn fiercely once again, of current media vitriolic by both sides is to be taken seriously.

SLPP won the 2018 presidential election by a very narrow 3% majority, which the incumbent APC government protested accusing the SLPP of electoral fraud aided by International Community’s Parliamentary election with 49 seats against the APC’s 68 seats, but later went on to use the Courts to nullify ten of the seats won by APC and took them over.

So, as 2023 approaches, the question in everyone’s mind is whether there is appetite for a return of the APC party to take over once again from now failing SLPP, or whether the people of Sierra Leone and the International Community believe that president Bio should be given the chance to govern for another five years.

Also, ahead of the 2023 elections, who will lead the race for the opposition All People’s Congress party?
