Sierra Leone’s president wins second term without need for runoff, election commission announces

Freetown, June 28 (BNA) Sierra Leone’s President Julius Maada Bio won a second term in office, taking 56.17% of the ballot vote and narrowly crossing the threshold to avoid a runoff in the West African country, election officials said.
