UN Web TV "Add Your Voice" series - Sierra Leone held peaceful General Elections over the weekend of 17 November, 2012.
The elections were the country's third since the end of its civil war, and the second since the withdrawal of the peacekeeping operation known as the UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL) in December 2005. That mission was replaced by various other UN offices, most recently the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office (UNIPSIL), which focuses on political and development activities.
The UN Human Rights Office present in the country lauded the participation of persons with disabilities during the polls.
