The National Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone campaigned to encourage voter registration.
Who gets your vote?

Sierra Leone's presidential and parliamentary elections take place on 11 August 2007.

Seven candidates are vying for the country's top job and although many believe the race for the presidency is between three main candidates, the four other parties have refused to form a coalition.

Umaru Fofana met with the seven candidates to find out more about their ideas and ambitions for the country and what they believe sets them ahead of the rest.
