The Peoples Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC) Publicity Secretary and Spokes person Mohamed Bangura has said that his party will take over the seat of Serry Kamal Justice Minister in constituency 29 in Bombali district.
Constituency 29 is the heart land of the All Peoples Congress (APC) and it was the constituency that President Koroma had intend to run for but gave it up to Serry Kamal because he (President Bai Koroma) contested for the presidential ticket.
After Serry Kamal has won the seat in Parliament, President Koroma decided to appoint him as the Attorney General and Minister of Justice. By virtue of that, and by law he resigned his seat as a member of Parliament paving way for the poll.
Mohamed Bangura who was speaking yesterday to Awoko in an exclusive interview predicted that the PMDC will win three seats which he detailed as one in Port Loko which was won by Kemoh Sesay who is now minister of Transport and Aviation, constituency 103 which brought in Minkailu Mansaray, who subsequently appointed minister of Labour and Social Security minister and constituency 29 seat of Serry Kamal.
He added that, the PMDC is far ahead in terms of preparation for the bye elections that was slated for March and the Local Council Elections in July.
The Publicity Secretary and spokesperson said that two women have manifested their interest in the symbol for Port Loko, two for Bombali and two for Western Area.
Mr Bangura noted that, “the most important elections is constituency 29 which the PMDC is set to take over”, adding that constituency 29 is our raider.
On the upcomig the Local Council elections slated for July, the Publicity Secretary said that, the PMDC will have a clean sweep of the South and East and the North and West .
He disclosed that, the bye-elections and the local council is a contest between the ruling APC and the PMDC.
Asked to elaborate on his assertion, Mr Bangura disclosed that the opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) is in disarray. They have no money, no structures, no leadership and no vision .
The PMDC scribe said SLPP are still talking about the past 2007 elections, noting that, “they are still politically drunk”.
Commenting on the alliance with APC, he noted that, his party is still comfortable with the alliance because of the positive change we are now seeing in the government.
Mr. Bangura said that the alliance will not stop us to critisize the APC if they fall short.
For those of the SLPP dreaming of bringing Charles Margai in to the party they are wasting their time, adding that Margai will not go back to the SLPP.
