Parties in Twifo Ati Morkwa constituency pledge peaceful election

     Three political parties in the Twifo Ati Morkwa constituency at the week-end, pledged to ensure a peaceful election in December.
 The New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Convention Peoples Party (CPP), made the pledge at a forum, organised by the Twifo-Hemang-Lower-Denkyira District Directorate of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE).
     They observed that since all political parties have one objective of offering good governance to the people, there was the need for them to co-operate to ensure an incident free election.
 Later in his address, Mr Thomas Yallow, District Director of the NCCE, reiterated that the success of the election would largely depend on the leadership of the various parties.
     He urged them to be circumspect in their utterances, especially during rallies and tolerate the views of their opponents, as well as educate their supporters on the "do's and don'ts" of elections, to ensure peace and tranquillity.
 He also advised party activists and the youth not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to create tension and violence before and after the general election.
