Sierra Leone’s President calls for dialogue after divisive polls


Sierra Leone's President Julius Maada Bio has called for "unity" and "dialogue" to overcome deep divisions over the June 24 disputed elections, at the official opening of the new National Assembly boycotted by the government.

"In this Parliament where no party has reached a two-thirds majority, the need for dialogue and negotiation resounds with the utmost urgency. We must find common ground across political divides," said the president re-elected at the end of June, in the first round, for a second term.

The opposition All People's Congress Party (APC) decided "on its non-participation at any level of governance, including the legislature and local councils, judging the results of the presidential, legislative and local elections " rigged" for the benefit of President Bio and his party.
