When the matter was mentioned by the court registrar, the above named judges observed that the applications of both the plaintiff appellants and the defendant respondents were too voluminous.

The judges however advised counsels representing both parties to reduce their applications into synopsis, so as to enable them look into the substantive matter, filed to the Appeal Court by counsels representing the plaintiff appellants.

Counsels for the plaintiff appellants appealed against a judgment earlier delivered by Justice Babatunde Edwards in which they concluded that the said judgment was not delivered in their favor, thus leaving them with no option, but to seek legal redress in the Appeal Court of Sierra Leone.

According to counsels for the plaintiff appellants, the Sierra Leone Peoples Party recent zonal, section, constituency, district and executive elections were conducted out the provisions of the party 1995 amended constitution.

They also argued that elections should be re-run in thirty nine constituencies, on the grounds that the process related to the said elections were staged managed, undemocratic and characterized by various forms of election violence , contrary to the party 1995 amended  democratic constitution.

Counsel representing the defendants respondents countered that the party zonal, section, constituency, district and executive elections were conducted, consonance to the party 1995 amended democratic constitution.

The matter was adjourned to Tuesday 9 May, 2017.
