UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon welcomed on Monday the "generally orderly and peaceful" holding of the second round of presidential elections in Sierra Leone.

"The secretary-general is pleased to note that the second round of the presidential election in Sierra Leone took place on 8 September in a generally orderly and peaceful atmosphere, in spite of the tensions and violence that marred the campaign period," Ban 's press office said in a statement.

"The secretary-general urges the political parties and people of Sierra Leone to exercise restraint as counting of the ballots proceeds and to resolve all arising disputes through the existing legal channels," it added.

Approximately 2.6 million registered voters went to the polls on Saturday in Sierra Leone to decide between two candidates in a closely-contested presidential run-off.
