No Presidential Candidate for NDA in Sierra Leone

It has become clear that one of the small opposition political parties in Sierra Leone, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) might contest the November 17 2012 elections without a Presidential candidate.

 

On Wednesday 10th October 2012, the party presented its Parliamentary candidates to the National Electoral Commission (NEC) but failed to present any candidate as its Presidential candidate for the polls because of a High Court Injunction restraining the party from presenting any candidate.

 

Hon. Justice Abdulai Charm of the High Court has refused the application to lift the Court Injunction against the NDA party which is already in effect

 

Members of the party were in Court yesterday hoping to get a ruling on the said matter before Hon. Justice Charm but were disappointed as the matter was adjourned to Monday 15th October 2012 for ruling.

 

What has now become a concern to many Sierra Leoneans who were present in Court during the adjournment yesterday is the point that, the slated adjourned date for the ruling, October 15, will be one day after a deadline given by NEC for all registered political parties to officially present their Presidential and Parliamentary candidate nominations. If for any reason NEC chooses not to extend the process to another date, then it is no secret that the NDA will contest the November 17 elections without a Presidential candidate.

 

It could be recalled that the injunction was issued upon an application filed by the former NDA presidential candidate aspirant, Mr. Mohamed Pateh Bah against the executive of the party for expelling him from the party and denying him a chance to contest for the position of presidential candidate.

 

Lawyers Dr. Bu-buakei Jabbie, E. S. Abdulai and T. Jabbie Fatha represented the defendant, NDA in Court yesterday whilst Lawyer Leon Jenkins Johnson Jr. represented the Plaintiff.
