Sierra Leoneans support democratic elections, term limits

Sierra Leoneans support democracy and multiparty competition and overwhelmingly favour presidential term limits, the latest Afrobarometer survey reveals.

But more than one-third of citizens are dissatisfied with the way democracy is working in Sierra Leone.

A little more than a decade since the country returned to democratic rule, large majorities of Sierra Leoneans reject non-democratic systems of government and prefer to choose their political leaders through open elections.


10 things to know about Afrobarometer data & methodology.

1. Afrobarometer has collected data on the perceptions and attitudes of African citizens since 1999.

2. Our data are collected from nationally representative samples.

3. All respondents are randomly selected; every adult citizen has an equal chance of being selected.

4. Samples are distributed across urban/rural areas in proportion to their share of the national population.

5. We use face-to-face interviews in the language of the respondent’s choice.
