The Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) backs the Government of Sierra Leone in its bid to return the small West African country to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) after half a century since 1971.
The elections for a seat in the Non-Permanent Category of the UNSC takes place tomorrow 6th June 2023 at the United Nations headquarters in New York at around 2pm GMT.
“As a beacon of peace, security and democracy in the African continent; and having shown leadership as head of the Africa Peer Review Mechanism, Chair of the African Union Committee of 10 on the reform of the UNSC, Sierra Leone is a worthy candidate for a seat in the non-permanent category in the UN Security Council,” said President of SLAJ, Ahmed Sahid Nasralla.
Meanwhile, SLAJ commends the strategic campaign led by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation to achieve this goal.
We wish the Sierra Leone delegation to the UN led by His Excellency President Julius Maada success.
