Council Of Churches Sierra Leone [CCSL] Friday held a press conference on the conduct of the March 7 multitier elections-general, parliamentary and local council respectively.
Bishop John Yambasu, president CCSL said his organization was accredited by National Electoral Commission [NEC] to observe the elections.
He said most polling stations had enough voting materials and that voting started on time, but claimed there were few documented exceptions hinging communications and adequate logistics, which, according to him, caused delay at some polling centers.
He pointed out that there were no reports of breaches of security at the polling stations.
“The Sierra Leone Police were generally vigilant and on top of the situation,” Bishop Yambasu added.
He applauded the entire voting process as transparent, free and fair.
“NEC and the people of Sierra Leone should be congratulated for a successful polling exercise,” he emphasized.
