His commitment came during the second week of the Commission’s visit to political parties and development partners.

Receiving the draft recommendations on the legal reform of the Political Parties Act of 2002 and the 1991 Constitution of Sierra Leone, Mr. Tucker said the commission needs to be given powers to take punitive actions against defaulters of the Political Parties Act and the Code of Conduct for Political Parties. This he said is a present weakness that is affecting the work of the commission.

He opined that if the commission was given more powers, there is the possibility of s non-violence 2012.

Mr. Tucker observed that if the commission is given the power to take punitive actions against defaulters, there is no need for the institution of Military Aid to Civil Power (MAC-P) during elections.

In his conclusion, Mr. Tucker expressed optimism on the ability of the restructured commission whiles assuring the commission that the PMDC will do all in its power to support the recommendations made by the commission.

The month long activities will serve as a platform to strengthen the collaboration between PPRC and its development partners.
