Fonseca told reporters the party would now organize a special convention to elect it’s successor and he would stay around until that person is chosen.

Leadership, Fonseca said, has made him a stronger and patient person and he is at peace over a decision he made some time ago and the work he has done for the party.

Fonseca will also not stand for re-election after completing his fourth term won yesterday in Freetown.
