The Political Parties Registration Commission PPRC has refused to award the provisional certificate of Registration to the National Progressive Democrat NPC due to the absence of the Interim Leader and Chairman Alimamy Cyllah.
The disclosure was made by the Chairman of the commission Honorable Justice M.E Tolla Thompson, while addressing a cross section of the party’s executive and their legal representative.
Addressing the meeting Justice Tolla Thompson said registering a political party is not the same as registering a company.
Political parties he said are a creation of the 1991 constitution and that the commission will not award the certificate to any other executive expect the interim leaders and Chairman of the party.
Deputy Interim Chairman and Leader Wadi Willaims accepted the commission’s position and promised to get back to the commission when the interim chairman/ leader arrives in Sierra Leone.
