The newly appointed Executive Representative of the UN Secretary-General to Sierra Leone Jens Anders Toyberg Frandzen has presented his letters of credence to President Ernest Bai Koroma at State House yesterday May 22nd 2012. He also used the opportunity to present the letters of recall of his predecessor.


The new ERSG thanked the President for giving him audience and pledged his support to President Koroma, the people of Sierra Leone and to also respect the Constitution of the country.  He vowed to comply with the duties of the United Nations to the best interest of the country and also assured the President of his full cooperation in the discharge of his duties.

 

In accepting the letters, President Koroma said that the current relationship between the United Nations and Sierra Leone is "more than excellent", adding that the UN has stood by the country through difficult times. He noted Sierra Leone is amongst an enviable group of UN success stories.

The President said his government placed premium on its great responsibility and commitment in consolidating the peace, deepening democracy and ensuring an improvement on the lives of the people. He noted that the posture of his government was one of openness, inclusiveness, belief in human rights and democracy.


However, President  Ernest Koroma observed that the new ERSG is coming in at a time when the general elections are round the corner and things will "soon start heating up politically".

 

President Koroma also maintained that he believes everything around this period should be within  framework of democracy; saying all political parties, the press and civil society would be given the necessary space within which they should be responsible and work within the law knowing Sierra Leone stands above everything else.


He said in this way, voters will be presented at the end of the day with a clear picture of events and so go on to properly choose the best candidate. He made it clear that when voters speak at the ballot box, their decision must be respected by all.


President ended by assuring his doors will be open to the ERSG at any time.
