UN Mission Trains Election Workers in Sierra Leone

From the UN News Center:

The United Nations Integrated Office in Sierra Leone (UNIOSIL) and the National Electoral Commission have finished training nearly 50 district officers, ahead of next month’s presidential and parliamentary polls in the once war-torn West African nation.

The three-day training focused on polling and counting procedures for the 11 August elections, which are widely regarded as a watershed in democratic development for a country that is still recovering from an 11-year long civil war.
