Blurb/Shorttext:
This book on Paramount Chieftaincy in Sierra Leone is a result of the lack of adequate reading materials on such an important, resilient and centuries old traditional institution of governance in provincial Sierra Leone, especially its electoral process. The book provides the History of Chieftaincy from pre-colonial to post-independence era. It examines some of the factors responsible for the decline in the authority and powers of contemporary Paramount Chiefs. The various stages involved in the conduct of a Paramount Chieftaincy election at chiefdom level are discussed in detail. The book also deals with the Pre-colonial governments of the Mende and Temne and the general functions of traditional rulers beginning from pre-colonial to post independence periods. Of more significance, the monograph contains detailed list of ruling houses which are qualified to present candidates for paramount chieftaincy elections at chiefdom level. The book will be useful to, among others, Elections Officials, Provincial Administrators, Paramount Chiefs, aspirants who want to contest paramount chieftaincy elections at chiefdom level, stakeholders and other researches.
