Voting for president calm in Sierra Leone
Question of the Day
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon praised Sierra Leone voters for the “peaceful and largely orderly elections.
“The high voter turnout and the remarkable calm displayed by the country’s citizens as they cast their votes are a clear manifestation of their desire for peace, democracy and development,” said a statement released by Mr. Ban’s spokesman.
The incumbent president, Mr. Koroma has pointed to his accomplishments during his first term, pleading with voters in his campaign signs: “I Will Do More.”
His supporters point to strides made in the country’s health care system through a program offering free medical aid.
Mr. Koroma’s APC party was expected to draw strong support in the north and in the capital, though he also appeared to be making some inroads in traditional opposition strongholds. It’s unclear, though, whether he can get the 55 percent of ballots needed to win outright and avert a runoff.
Bio calls himself the “father of democracy” after his brief three-month tenure as head of state in 1996 before handing over power to a democratically elected civilian government.
Bio and his supporters maintain the president has failed to deliver on his 2007 election promises and does not deserve a second term.
