Sierra Leone Holds Final Round of Voting in Presidential Run-Off
The two leading candidates - Samura Kamara of the ruling All People's Congress and Julius Maada Bio of the Sierra Leone People's Party - are in a virtual dead heat, just as they were at the end of the first round of voting earlier this month. This comes after the National Electoral Commission announced a new date for run-off after Bio won by just 15,000 votes way below the mandatory 55% required for victory, in a country with 3.1 million eligible voters.
Sierra Leoneans go to the polls again for the presidential run-off.
