The Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC), wishes to inform the membership of the four political parties contesting the bye- election in constituency 110 (All Peoples Congress (APC),National Grand Coalition ( NGC),Sierra Leone Peoples Party ( SLPP) and Unity Party (UP) and the general public that, in a meeting held at our office, on Monday 5th August 2019, attended by three of the said contesting parties ( NGC,SLPP and UP) and which the APC was indisposed to attend, pertinent issues relating to the conduct of political parties and their membership on polling day were discussed.
The Parties in the presence of the National Electoral Commission (NEC), the Office of National Security ( ONS) and the Sierra Leone Police ( SLP), inter alia unanimously resolved as follows:
1.That they endorse the suspension of all political party rallies in the said constituency for the said by election
2. That no candidate should move around the constituency on polling day. Candidates should go home after voting, as their presence would often attract rowdy supports.
3 That each party contesting the by election, is allowed four party stakeholders in the constituency on polling day, in not more than four vehicles, each vehicle not to have more than three persons on board namely: the stakeholder the Driver and the security personnel attached to the stakeholder. Stakeholders of political parties residing in the constituency, are to go home after voting like any other voter, unless they are amongst the four stakeholders of their party
4. That each party contesting is entitled to have two representatives in the tally centre etc.
Details of the resolutions reached in the said meeting, are contained in an MOU signed by the parties and copy of which, is attached to this press statement.
