Politics of Tuesday, 27 November 2012
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has reaffirmed its commitment to ensuring that the December 7 polls is peaceful and credible.
The party and its members would abide the rules and regulations, governing the elections as they protect the integrity of the ballot.
Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, the Afigya Kwabre South Constituency Chairman, gave the assurance at an inter-denominational prayer and thanksgiving service organized at Atimatim.
It was held under the theme “Service for peace and victory”.
He said religious leaders played critical roles in nation building, providing voices of moderation that often helped to douse the heat and bring down political tension.
Odeneho Appiah said the election was simply about development and progress of the nation and urged members of his party to work hard to assist voters to have better understanding of the NPP’s manifesto.
He also advised polling station coordinators to properly educate the electorate on the correct way to thumbprint the ballot to reduce the number of spoilt votes.
Mr William Owuraku Aiddo, the party’s parliamentary candidate, said the free SHS policy by the NPP would significantly transform the country and put it on the path of industrialization and economic prosperity.
