President Julius Bio of Sierra Leone was on Tuesday declared the winner of the presidential election in the West African country.


According to The CNN, Mr Bio secured victory by polling over 56 per cent of the votes to avoid a run-off against main rival Samura Kamara, who polled about 41 per cent.


The president, 59, was running for re-election after a first term of five years characterised by inflation, high cost of living and poor currency.
