Editor’s note: : This is a response to an article by Dr. Hassan Sisay of Wisconsin,USA.

By Saidu I. Koroma.

"At issue is the question, should presidents of Sierra Leone be required to include in their administrations members of the opposing political parties? The problem is compounded by the fact that our political parties are mostly divided along ethnic and regional lines. The ruling APC party generates most of its support from the Northern and western areas, while the Southeast is dominated by the current opposition SLPP."

You rightly wrote:’the ruling party generates most of its support from the Northern and western areas’ not ALL mind you. What of that small number from the South-Eastern Provinces? Appointing/including members from the opposition to/in the administration is not the issue, the issue is not appointing/including the APC Party members/supporters from the South-Eastern Provinces? We are all the same party members/supporters right? Never mind, its all at the pleasure of the President but there should be semblance of National cohesion.
