Politicians Urged to Join Voter Registration Campaign


The Chairman of the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC) Abdullai Masiyambay Bangurah yesterday 24th August 2022 urged the leadership of the Seventeen Registered Political Parties in Sierra Leone to engage in robust sensitisation on the importance of the 2022 voter registration process.

In his statement during the launching of the 2022 voter registration exercise, the Chairman informed the gathering that the Commission with funds from the government of Sierra Leone intends to deploy the membership of the All Political Parties Youth Association (APPYA) and the All Political Parties Women’s Association to also encourage Sierra Leoneans of voting age to come out from 3rd of September to 4th of October 2022 to be registered by the Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone (ECSL). This he says will contribute enormously to making the process inclusive and transparent.

He advised Political Parties not to engage in any form of campaigning during the exercise as the ECSL is yet to declare the start of the campaign.

He concluded that the Commission will continue its collaboration with the ECSL and that the Commission will also lend its support to the activities of the ECSL.
