The party’s problems hopefully behind it now, the All People’s Congress has slated September 1-4 as the date for its convention, to decide on the team for the 2007 General Elections. The convention will be held at the Bai Bureh Memorial Hall in Port Loko.
However, party stalwarts are apprehensive that factions opposed to present Leader Ernest Koroma might throw a spanner in the works . According to some supporters in New Jersey , the Eddie Turay-Serry Kamal faction could stir up another court battle, thus leading to the cancellation of the convention.
However, many APC fanatics who talked to COCORIOKO believe that the leaders of the party were not seeking the interests of the people and should try to be united now so that they would challenge the equally-fragmented ruling SLPP in the forthcoming General Elections.
Many of these supporters , some of whom were undecided at first, called on all supporters of the APC to give Ernest Koroma, who eventually prevailed in the marathon court battles , a chance to re-invent the party .They expressed tremenduous confidence in Ernest Koroma, whom they described as young and dynamic and brimming with lots of progressive ideas .
