The Independent Commission for Peace and National Cohesion engaged the leadership of the main opposition party, All People’s Congress (APC).
The Peace Commission is meeting with the main opposition more than a month after the party decided to boycott government and governance.
The APC party is yet to accept results announced by the Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL) citing anomalies. The party has urged the ECSL to release election results by polling station rather than by district.
The Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) won the Presidential polls after the incumbent Julius Maada Bio won with just over 57 percent of total valid votes.
Weeks after the final results were announced the leadership of the APC intimated that they will boycott government and governance if their demands are not met. Members of parliament and other elected members later signed a dossier indicating their commitment to honour the party’s decision.
Meanwhile, President Bio has urged the leadership of the APC to work with him after he was inaugurated to serve his second term.
All efforts to resolve the issue has so far failed to succeed and some members of the public fear that the West African nation is slowly backsliding into a one-party state.
