Political parties urged to engage truthful party agents

Deputy Upper West Regional Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mr. John Bosco Yaagi, has advised political parties to engage party agents that would give true accounts of what happens at polling stations to prevent clashes during the upcoming elections.

He observed that some political party agents assigned to polling stations on voting days sometimes spread false information about happenings at the stations to their supporters and consequently provoke violence to dent the credibility o elections.

Mr. Yaagi, who said this at the inauguration of the Wa Municipal Inter-Party Dialogue Committee at Wa on Thursday, called on the parties to educate their supporters on the laws governing the electoral process.
