After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves - Barack Obama

In 2006 the SLPP held its national convention in Makeni. The key outcome of that convention was the election of its flag bearer for the 2007 election. Several party members - Berewa, Margai, Bio, J E Leigh - vied for the flag bearer role. Actual voting took place and Berewa emerged victorious. JE Leigh did not accept the outcome of that election. He mocked the party and declared the convention a COMBENTION. He left the party and joined the APC. Smart move!

Now in 2017, the APC held a similar convention in Makeni. But this time, the supreme leader - for- life,  king E B Koroma did not allow any elections for the flag bearer, contrary to party rules. EBK instead selected Dr. Samura Kamara as the flag bearer for the APC. 

We would like to know what JEL said or did after this display of arrogance by EBK.  Did JEL declare the APC Makeni convention a COMBENTION? Has JEL any values, standards?
