Sierra Leone election run-off

Freetown - Presidential elections to end military rule in Sierra Leone will go to a second round between the top two candidates after voting last Monday and Tuesday failed to produce an outright winner. Electoral commission chairman James Jonah said he would meet political parties and the head of state, Brigadier-General Julius Maada Bio, to discuss the second round. Ahmad Tejan Kabbah of the Sierra Leone People's Party polled 35.8 per cent of votes and will face John Karefa-Smart of the United National People's Party, who had 22.6 per cent. Reuter
