Ban- Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary General

Sierra Leone elections held on November 17.

The United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, on Monday congratulated President Ernest Bai Koroma, as well as the people and institutions of Sierra Leone on the successful and peaceful elections held on November 17.

Mr. Ki-moon in a statement by his spokesperson, Martin Nesirky, noted that Sierra Leone elections clearly demonstrated the people’s strong commitment to consolidate democracy and development.

He emphasised the need for all Sierra Leoneans to work together in the period ahead, while he welcomed President Koroma’s pledge to reach out to all and to promote national reconciliation and unity.

The secretary-general also commended Sierra Leone’s political leaders for maintaining the atmosphere of calm that had prevailed during the election process.

He, however, urged all sides to address any outstanding grievances peacefully and through established national mechanisms and institutions.

Ban expressed confidence that the strong partnership between the United Nations and Sierra Leone would continue in the best interest of the people of that country.
