How the run-off election works...

Just a little insight on how exactly the run-off election will take place...

Since no candidate won more than 55% of the vote in the first-round of the presidential elections held on August 11, 2007, a run-off between the top two candidates, the All People’s Congress’ Ernest Koroma, who garnered 44% of the votes, and the Sierra Leone People’s Party’s Solomon Berewa, who garnered 38% of the votes, took place September 8, 2007.

Voters again go to the polling stations to vote. And within two weeks the final result will be announced. The winner, who will become President of Sierra Leone, will be decided by a simple majority of the votes.
