The leaderships of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP), the All People’s Congress (APC) Party, the Coalition for Change (C4C) Party and the National Grand Coalition (NGC) have signed a Communiqué to promote moral values and condemn violence.

The parties agreed to promote, observe and enforce the observance of the cultural and moral values of society and to condemn all forms of obscenities, vulgarities, hate speech and all other proscribed conduct in the Political Parties Act No 25 of 2022, against their political opponents.

It was also agreed that political parties will continue to engage and admonish their members and supporters to refrain from all such conduct, in the course of their partisan activities and that they commit to support and cooperate with the Sierra Leone Police, to identify and arrest perpetrators of all such proscribed conduct, in the course of their activities.

The political parties encouraged the Political Parties’ Regulation Commission (PPRC) to engage the leadership of all political parties, before invoking the powers conferred on them in the new Act, each time there is perceived transgression by any of the Parties, in the spirit of mutual cooperation and goodwill.
