In preparation for the 2023 Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Council Elections, the Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (EC-SL) is presently in Bo city, Southern Sierra Leone for a training of District Staff on the Exhibition of the Provisional List of Voters (PLV).
The Commission is organising the 2-day training for its staff drawn from the South-Eastern regions on the proposed voter exhibition and inquiry scheduled for late November this year.
The training is aimed at capacitating them on the requisite skills that are considered needful for the purpose of exhibition and inquiry.
The training engagement attracted senior staff of the Commission who are required to cascade the training knowledge to other staff upon their return to their different districts.
The Commission 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.
