The Women’s wing of the ruling Sierra Leone people’s Party (SLPP) is reportedly bracing up to face the Political Parties Registration Commission ( PPRC), following a fresh dispute over the setting up of a women council within the party structure.

In a letter written lately to the Leader of the SLPP, President Julius Maada Bio, the group of practitioners headed by Josephine Jackson raised serious objections to the composition of council, saying the way and the manner in which the council leadership was selected was illegal and goes against provisions of the new 2021 SLPP Constitution.

According to the petition letter, the leader of the SLPP Women’s Wing, Hawa Foray did not consult the the full membership, stressing that sections of the SLPP constitution provide for national convention in order to elect Council members.

However, she expressed dismay that instead of going by the party constitution, the SLPP women Leader allegedly went on and hand-picked certain members to serve in the council.

The petition letter also revealed that the current women’s Leader is allegedly sidelining some key and influential women in the party, replacing them with people close to the first Lady Madam Fatima Bio.

Meanwhile, the practitioners are calling on the leader of the Party to intervene, thereby preventing them going to the PPRC
