Sunday, 18th November, 2012: On behalf of myself and the National Executive of the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP), I wish to express my deepest gratitude and thanks to the entire membership of the Party for their tireless and unrelenting effort during this electoral process.
Provisional Results of the elections started coming in since last night and have been broadcast by the Independent Radio Network (IRN). The results reported by IRN come in from various polling stations across the country and so far they do not reflect any pattern that may give an indication of who is winning or losing. I wish to emphasise, as IRN itself has repeatedly said, that the results are purely provisional.

Sierra Leone’s socio-economic outlook since the advent of the All Peoples Congress Government of Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma has been dismal. The management of the economy as reflected in the living condition of most of our people has been depressing. Sierra Leone’s economy which grew at an average of about 6.5 percent between 2002-2006 can only boast of a 3.2 % growth rate in 2009. The foreign exchange rate that was stable between Le 2,700-Le 2,900 to US$1 during the same period now vacillates between Le.4, 200 and Le.4, 350 to US$1.
