According to the motion, the plaintiffs honored the court to grant an Order for directing the defendants, meaning the Chairman of the National Electoral Commission, N’fah Alie Conteh and the National Electoral Commission as a body to register and have their names recorded in the 2018 Final Voter Register.

The plaintiffs further prayed to the High Court of Justice for an Order for the defendants to produce the Final Voter Register in existence, containing their names before 7th September 2017, in compliance with Section (17) of the Public Elections Act No.4 of 2012, after having stated in NEC press release dated 6th September 2017 that the task of registering voters has completed.

They also seek the Court for the defendants to allow the plaintiffs either by themselves or a court appointed elections expert to inspect the Final Voter Register in existence on or before 7th September 2017 in compliance with Section 17 of the Public Elections Act No.4 of 2012 of the laws of Sierra Leone.

Furthermore, all plaintiffs prayed that the court grant any further consequential Order or Orders that it may deem fit in the circumstance as far as their motion is concern.

The matter is yet to commence proceedings but it is expected that in the coming days the High Court would commence hearing and for the court to interpret and determine who is on the wrong side of the law.
