Supreme Court Restrains SLPP from Holding Delegate Elections
The highest and most powerful court in Sierra Leone, Supreme Court July 30th, in its ruling, restrained the current Executive Members of the main opposition Sierra Leone People Party (SLPP) from holding delegate elections.
The ruling of the court was read out by Justice Eku Brown, indicating that the injunction sought by Ambassador Alie Essam Bangura against the party not to hold elections for delegates pending the determination of the Originating Notice of motion before the court was in place .
The matter was adjourned to 24th September, 2015 when the substantive matter against the party Executive by Ambassador Alie .E.Bangura will resume hearing.
The Supreme Court Judges that presided over the ruling were, Acting Chief Justice, Hon. Justice Valicious .V.Thomas, Justice Niclolas Brown Mark, Justice Patrick Hamilton and Justice Vivian Solomon.
It could be recalled that immediately after the party National Conference held in Bo City in August 2012, Ambassador Alie E Bangura, who contested against the current Chairman and Leader of the Party, Chief Somano Kapen dragged the party to court for what his legal luminaries headed by Lawyer Yada Williams referred to as election malpractices before and during election process.
The intervention of the Political Party Registration Commission (PPRC) to resolve the impasse proved futile and Ambassador Alie E Bangura filed a motion in the Supreme Court seeking an injunction on the party executive.
