Speaking to this press recently, Suliaman Bumneh Kamara noted that the over four thousand five hundred executive positions that would be contested for are from wards, constituencies, districts and regional levels, adding that after the conduct of these lower-level elections, the TIIEMC would then conduct another election for national executive positions during the party’s upcoming National Delegates’ Conference (NDC) which is expected to take not later than 29th of January, 2023.

Sulaiman Bumneh Kamara Esq also noted that the positions that are up for grabs in each category of the elections are Chairman, Deputy chairmen, Secretaries, Deputy Secretaries, Financial Secretaries, Treasures, Organising Secretaries and others, among others.
