Sierra Leone’s main opposition, All People’s Congress (APC) has issued a 6 months ultimatum to the Government over demands raised after the 2023 multitier election.
APC disputed results announced by the Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL) citing that they failed to release results by polling centres.
The main opposition party released a dossier signed by members of parliament and other senior members planning a boycott of government and governance.
Recently, speaking on Voice of America (VOA), the APC Deputy National Secretary General Osman Abdal Timbo said the denial of their request by the ECSL is a sign that the elections were not fair and credible.
Exclusive Newspaper also reported that Timbo said they have informed the Government that elections be conducted in the next 6 months because they believed the numbers are cooked.
The ECSL declared the incumbent Julius Maada Bio of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) as winner of the presidential election after securing 57 percent of total valid votes.
The APC could have challenged the results in court within six days but they refused despite one of their members advising them to take the legal route.
Their Deputy National Secretary General said the country’s Judiciary is biased towards their party citing that most of their cases have not been treated justly.
