In the run-up to the Presidential, Parliamentary and local elections in Sierra Leone on 17 November 2012, Amnesty International calls upon election monitors and observers to give human rights monitoring a central place in their mandates. It is essential that election monitoring, in addition to observing the election process itself, takes full account of contextual human rights factors, before, during and after the elections. In this briefing, Amnesty International makes a number of recommendations for integrating human rights into election monitoring.
