Western Area Regional Chairman of the Sierra Leone ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) Party has called on residents of the Western Area to come out in their numbers and to register for the March 7th 2018 general elections.


Honourable Captain Alie Pat-Sowe, who is also the country’s Minister of Trade and Industry made this statement on Wednesday 15th March 2017, during an exclusive telephone call interview with the Awareness Times Newspaper.

 

Whilst explaining, the Honourable Minister said the Western Area is a very important area for the APC, as his party enjoys overwhelming victory in the region in both the 2007 and 2012 general elections.

Honourable Pat-Sowe assured that the APC is fully set to coordinate and ensure that come March 7th 2018, the Western Area will be able to slam a landslide victory for the party.  As a result, he pledged that together with his constituency executives, they will undertake a robust Voters Registration Sensitization Exercise, which will serve as bedrock to lure citizens to register.

 

Western Area Region of Sierra Leone is a place which comprised the capital Freetown and its environs. 

 

According to Statistics Sierra Leone (SSL) 2016 Population and Housing Census result, the total population of the country is 7,092,113. Eastern Region amounted to 1,642,370, Northern Region 2,508,201, Southern Region 1,441,308 and Western Area 1,500,234 forming 23.2%, 35.4%, 20.3% and 21.1% respectively of the entire population of Sierra Leone.

 

Meanwhile, it could be recalled that, pursuant to Sections 57, 43(2) and 103 of the Public Elections Act 2012, the President and National Electoral Commission after mutual consultations have declared the 7th March 2018 for Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Elections respectively in Sierra Leone.

 

It could also be recalled that, in accordance with Section 17 of the same, the National Electoral Commission has also announced the period between March 20th and April 16th, 2017 (7am-5pm daily) for registration of eligible voters in Sierra Leone.

 

That, anyone who fails to register within the stated registration period in Sierra Leone will not be eligible to vote, or be voted for, in the 2018 elections.


Against this backdrop, the Western Area Regional Chairman of the APC, Honourable Captain Alieu Pat-Sowe has called on all Sierra Leoneans to come out in massive numbers so that they could register, and exercise their franchise in accordance to the laws of the country.
