According to the PMDC manifesto, security, law and order are paramount to the sustainable development of Sierra Leone, and they will do all in their power to maintain them.
Also, appropriate measures will be taken (with the necessary reforms put in place) to satisfactorily enhance effective governance.
Taking into cognizance the fact that this nation has barely come out of war, and that the maintenance of security, law and order are paramount, one of the Movement’s policy goals prioritizes security and translates it to include the welfare of the masses in order to avoid mass discontent.
To achieve this, PMDC will provide the wherewithal for the Armed Forces and Police to ensure effective and efficient performance in the conduct of their duties: protecting life and property; law and order enforcement; adequately and effectively handling home-grown insurgency; protecting the nation against external aggression.
Also they ensure adequate policing of our porous borders, which shall be paramount to our national security strategy to control smuggling, illegal cross-border activities, money laundering, human trafficking and security threats across our borders.
PMDC will make sure that immigration for national stability becomes a priority area. A PMDC government shall set up mechanisms for the sharing of information on security and trans-national crime with modalities put in place to ensure effective control.
The rule of law is a sine qua non for any democratic society. It is the cornerstone for good governance leading to a stable society. PMDC is committed to upholding the rule of law and guarantees a free, open and just society.
PMDC will ensure the independence of the judiciary as opposed to what obtains now and had long been.
Also reform the judicial and justice system to make them more efficient, effective and attractive.
We will embark on comprehensive legal reforms to address the imbalances in our society, including a review of the Public Order Act No. 46 of 1965.
PMDC will guarantee the constitutional and democratic rights of all citizens, viz: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom of association, freedom of information, right to free access to information, right to free, fair and expeditious trial and freedom of the press.
Institute and reinforce discipline at all levels in the society, as part and parcel of the maintenance of law and order.
Enforcement of laws and regulations will be strictly administered to uphold serve as deterrent in the maintenance of law and order.
