Category: Politics 0

Mr Edward Gyamfi, Tain District Director of the Electoral Commission (EC) has appealed to the political parties not to encourage registered minors to queue and vote on the December 7 General Election.

He said the political parties should also appoint trustworthy agents to the polling stations while the agents should refrain from confronting eligible voters.

Mr Gyamfi made the appeal at a workshop attended by 50 youth representatives of political parties at Nsawkaw in the Brong Ahafo Region.

The workshop on the theme: “Empowering the Youth to Stand up for Ghana for a Peaceful Election 2012”, was organised by the District Directorate of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) and sponsored by the European Union.

Mr Issah Abdullahi Nasagri, Regional Director of the NCCE, urged State institutions involved in ensuring peaceful elections to be fair to all the political parties.

Mr Saaka Davis Kotomah, District Director of NCCE, asked the youth to refrain from acts likely to mar the peace of Election 2012.
