The international community express concern on Sierra Leone elections

The international community has raised concerns about voting and counting in the Sierra Leone general elections that saw incumbent Julius Maada Bio narrowly secure a second and last term.

Bio of the Sierra Leone People’s Party got fifty-six point one-seven percent of the vote, with his closest rival, Samura Kamara, of the All People’s Congress receiving forty one point one -six percent in Saturday’s election.

In a joint statement, the US, UK, Germany, and France said they noted significant logistical problems that hampered voting on election day in certain areas.
