PPRC News Brief 5th October 2015
Registered Political Parties in Sierra Leone will on Wednesday 7th October 2015 through the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC) present their position papers to the National Electoral Commission (NEC) on the proposed postponement of the 2016 Local Council Election.
It can be recalled that on Thursday 10th September 2015, NEC during a one day engagement with political parties gave political parties fourteen (14) days to come up with their position papers on the proposed postponement of the 2016 Local Council Election.
This was done after NEC in a PowerPoint presentation by the Director of Administration Abubakarr Koroma informed political party representatives that because of the Outbreak of Ebola and the postponement of the National Population Census, Local Council Elections will not be held in December 2016.
The Local Council Elections he said will be held together with the Presidential and Parliamentary Elections between January and February 2018. Mr. Koroma informed the meeting that Boundary Delimitation will be held from April – December 2016, Update of Voters Register from January – June 2017, Referendum from September – December 2017 and Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Council Elections between January – February 2018.
