The Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC) on Monday forwarded series of petitions to the national executive of the main opposition Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP).
A total of fourteen petitions, concerns and complaints are believed to have been lodged with the commission by party members relating to the rules and regulations which was drafted for the forthcoming lower level elections.
A source at the SLPP HQ has confirmed that the party has received the petitions from the PPRC, noting that a National Officers meeting will be convened this week to put together a response to the petitions.
SLPP lower level elections were put on hold in January after the KKY Movement, the campaign outfit of the former UNIDO boss, Dr. Kandeh Yumkella protested to the PPRC indicating its readiness to petition the rules and regulations which was overwhelmingly endorsed by the party’s superior administrative organ at its January meeting this year.
According to Global Times sources most of what was forwarded to the PPRC by KKY Movement members were complaints not necessarily petitions as has been widely publicized.
PPRC sources confirmed the commission will meet with the petitioners and the National Officers, representing the National Executive Council (NEC) to go through the petitions, concerns and complaints as soon as possible.
