Coalition for Change Sierra Leone a non- governmental organization operation throughout the country on Saturday 1st April 2017 at a public consultation with the people of the country, has expressed concern over the snail -pace of the ongoing Voterís Registration Process in the country.

 

The Executive Director, Dalton Calton said that from the nationwide consultations they conducted with people throughout the country to seek their views on the ongoing Voterís Registration process revealed that the government and all other parties involves should extend the time on the registration process throughout the country. He went on that some of the concerns raised by the people firstly is for government to lengthen the period of the registration process and to remove some of the questions that are attached to the process because they are not educated. He added that majority of the people claimed that they are not sensitized on the elements of the process as that would have put them in a better position to go throughout the process quickly. He continued that most of the people urged His Excellency Ernest Bai Koroma and all other interested parties to extend the period of the registration process in the country as it is their constitutional rights to vote and be voted for and that government should revisit the registration period set because it has the tendency of depriving them in exercising their constitutional rights. 

 

Executive Director Dalton Calton concluded that they will not relent to monitor and urged the people of Sierra Leone to go and register because it is their constitutional rights and that there is a need for the government to extend the time for the people so that they can add their voice in the decisions process in the country by electing people to serve in various capacities in the country.
