The Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (EC-SL) has revealed plans to exhibit the Provisional Voters List (PVL) from 24th to 28th November 2022 and Inquiry from 4th to 5th December, 2022, 7:00am to 5:00pm daily.
In preparation for the 2023 Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Council Elections, the EC-SL has the Legal mandate to exhibit the review of captured information of all eligible Sierra Leoneans who presented themselves for registration during the 3rd September to 8th October 2022.
According to EC-SL, the purpose for displaying the Provisional Voters List is for all registrants who took part in the registration process to; confirm their information, correct errors if any, or be opportune to have their omitted names included, or object to certain names on the PVL on grounds of ineligibility.
The Commission went on that the objection must be made from 24th – 28th November, 2022 to enable the Commission make decisions and take appropriate action in time.
The Exhibition exercise, the EC-SL went on, will be conducted simultaneously in all 446 Wards hosting 3,630 Centres across the country and that each Centre will have an Exhibition Officer and two Assistant Exhibition Officers to serve the public.
“All objections and appeals made will be looked into by the Revising Officers, who are seasoned Sierra Leoneans selected for their integrity and impartiality.
The Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone solicits your sense of patriotism in the electoral process for credible and transparent, 2023 elections.
In another development, the European Union, Ireland and UNDP yesterday 9th November 2022 signed Agreements to support peaceful conduct of the 2023 Elections in Sierra Leone. The signing took place at the EC-SL Headquarters in Freetown.
