Two of the parties registered to contest the elections have followed the example of the United Democratic Movement ( UDM ) by stepping down and declaring for the APC. The two parties are the National Democratic Alliance ( NDA ) and the Citizens’ Democratic Party ( CDP).

Mr. Bangura writes : “This latest move by no less a person than Musidal Jalloh is indicative of the fact that all the remaining contesting aspirants excluding SLPP’s Maada Bio will lend their support to President Koroma to win the first ballot.” According to him, in another development, SLPP young Generation Youth leader Kandeh Sesay has officially declared for APC and called on all youths to vote EBK.
