Responding to a presentation on the purpose and benefit of the proposed civil registration by the Chief Registrar Foday Kamara, the nine political parties advised that the proposed National Civil Registration Bill 2015 should be revisited and that politic parties including key stakeholders should be involved in the entire process.  The nine political parties applauded the efforts of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the National Registration Secretariat (NRS) for steps taken in harmonizing all registration in Sierra Leone but say voters’ registration is very critical and must be left in the hands of NEC.

The Peoples Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC) was not represented in the meeting.
