SIERRA LEONE GOVERNMENT

Office of the President

PUBLIC NOTICE

 

FRIDAY, 11 AUGUST 2006

BIRIWA CHIEFDOM PARAMOUNT CHIEFTAINCY ELECTION

 

This election, like all other Paramount Chief elections, is by law conducted by the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development in accordance with the Provinces Act, Cap.60.

 

It is not a public election or a referendum referred to in Section 33 of the Constitution, the conduct and supervision of which is the responsibility of the Electoral Commission, and it is not a local government election which is governed by the Local Government Act 2004.

 

Section 33 of the Constitution provides that the Electoral Commission shall be responsible for the conduct and supervision of the registration of voters for, and of, all public elections and referenda; and for that purpose shall have power to make regulations by statutory instrument for the registration of voters, the conduct of presidential, parliamentary or local government elections and referenda, and other matters connected therewith, including regulations for voting by proxy.

 

In the case of Paramount Chief elections, a different procedure is prescribed for the ascertaining of voters, i.e., chiefdom councillors who constitute the Electoral College compiled by the provincial administration and duly gazetted.  The responsibility of the conduct and supervision of paramount chief elections is by the Provincial Secretary who is assisted by assessor Paramount Chiefs.  The same procedure is being applied in the Biriwa Chiefdom election.

 

Government therefore requests all concerned to cooperate fully to ensure that the pending Paramount Chief elections in that Chiefdom is conducted fairly, freely and peacefully.
