Sierra Leone’s Electoral Delegate On Experience Sharing Mission

A two-member technical delegation from the Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone (ECSL) is in Liberia to share experience with the National Elections Commission (NEC) and provide technical support on the Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) system.

The NEC, through its Chairperson, Davidetta Browne Lansanah, requested the assistance from the Chairperson of ECSL, under the Economic Commission of Network of Elections Commissions of West Africa (ECONEC) Information Sharing Agreement, in preparation for the roll out of the 2023 BVR exercise on 20 March.

According to a NEC statement, the Director of Data Management and Voters Roll of ECSL, Jusufu Henry Swaray, the delegation will mainly be engaged with the data center and will be sharing templates and other information useful for the smooth implementation of the NEC BVR system. 

Mr. Swaray said that the ECSL is glad to support Liberia’s migration from Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) to BVR, which, he noted, is a more globally accepted and modern electoral system. 

The NEC statement issued on Tuesday said, the delegation, which will be in Liberia for five days, also includes Aiah Quiwa, Assistant Director for Administration of the ECSL.

The Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone successfully used the Biometric Voter Registration in the 2012, 2018 and, 2022 elections.
