Sierra Leone faces strained setting ahead of presidential elections

Freetown, Jun 22 (Prensa Latina) Less than 48 hours before the start of presidential elections, Sierra Leone is currently experiencing an edgy scenario tinged by accusations and clashes between opponents and supporters of President Julius Maada Bio.

At least 66 people were arrested after Wednesday´s clashes between police and protesters.

The main unrests were conducted in Freetown and in other parts of the country.

13 individuals are vying for the top job in the West African country, but according to analysts, it will be a two-horse race between the incumbent president elected in 2018 and his main opponent.
