The National Peace Council has urged the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) to maintain peace in today’s by-election in the Kumawu constituency.

The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the National Peace Council, Rt. Rev. Nuh Ben Abubekr said the party executives and the members should respect the peace of the constituency and must not replicate what happened in the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election in 2019.

“We want peace; no one liked what happened at Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency during the by-election. We don’t want it to be repeated here. Parliament has also enacted a law, the police chief Dampare George Akuffo has also met the two main political parties.

“We expect them to follow the law and follow the road map they themselves have set up.”

Rt. Rev. Nuh Ben Abubekr also asked the Electoral Commission (EC) and its assigns to do their work without discrimination.

“They should do their work properly and impartially without deviating from what they have been taught,” Rt. Rev. Nuh Ben Abubekr added.

Voters in Kumawu today, Tuesday, May 23, are expected to cast their ballots in 78 polling stations to elect a new Member of Parliament following the demise of Philip Basoah.

Four candidates, including Ernest Anim of the NPP, Kwasi Amankwaa of the NDC, and two independent candidates named Kwaku Duah, are vying to replace the late Mr Basoah.

The symbol for the first Kwaku Duah on the ballot paper is a bird, and the symbol for the second Kwaku Duah is a hoe.
