On Monday morning, the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Dr. Samura Kamara together with his running mate, Hon. Chernor Maju Bah officially went through the nomination process at the Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL) Headquarter on Tower Hill in Freetown.

The ECSL Commissioner, Mohamed Kenewui Konneh said 1 May has marked the start of the nomination process for parties as part of preparations for the June polls. Konneh also praised the APC party for adhering to protocols of the process and pleaded with them to continue along the same path.

During the process, both Dr. Kamara and his running mate were asked for their voter’s ID Cards.

During the process, the ECSL confirmed whether their applications have been submitted online and cross-check if the party has endorsed Dr. Samura and his running mate.

The ECSL approved the APC Presidential Candidate’s presentation after going through their document and ID card.

Also in attendance for the APC were the Secretary General, Lansana Dumbuya and Chairman, Minkailu Mansaray.

Dr. Kamara will contest against the incumbent SLPP Julius Maada Bio who defeated him twice five years ago. Political analysts say the election will be closely contested as the West African nation’s economy continue to dip.
