A communiqué was signed on the 6th March, 2023 at the New Brookfields Hotel in Freetown, during a dialogue lunch convened by the Political Parties Regulation Commission (PPRC),  by  the Leadership/Representatives of the All Peoples Congress (APC), Coalition for Change Party (C4C), the National Grand Coalition (NGC), and the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP),

The parties agreed to promote, observe and enforce the observance of the cultural and moral values of society and to condemn all forms of obscenities, vulgarities, hate speech and all other proscribed conduct in the Political Parties Act No 25 of 2022, against their political opponents.

It was also agreed that political parties will continue to engage and admonish their members and supporters to refrain from all such conduct, in the course of their partisan activities and that they commit to support and cooperate with the Sierra Leone Police, to identify and arrest perpetrators of all such proscribed conduct, in the course of their activities.

The Political Parties encouraged the PPRC to engage the leadership of Political Parties, before invoking the powers conferred on them in the new Act, each time there is perceived transgression by any of the Parties, in the spirit of mutual cooperation and goodwill.
