Sierra Leone's delayed presidential election run-off set for March 31

FREETOWN (Reuters) - Sierra Leone’s delayed presidential election run-off will go ahead on March 31, the National Electoral Commission said in a statement on Monday, after a delay caused by allegations of fraud.

The face-off between opposition leader Julius Maada Bio and ruling party standard-bearer Samura Kamara was supposed to go ahead on Tuesday but was delayed after a member of Kamara’s All People’s Congress alleged fraud in the first round.
