The programme was put together by the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to offer the opportunity for the candidates to interact and share their development vision with voters.

The European Union (EU) provided the funding.
On hand to participate, were Nana Prempeh Amankwah of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ms. Ama Pomaa Boateng, New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Mr. Stephen Ayiti Abdulai, Convention People’s Party (CPP).

They took turns to underline their determination to work hard to transform the living conditions of the people, if given the mandate to represent them in parliament.

Mr. Patrick A. Nelson, EU/NCCE Grant Project Manager for the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections, applauded the candidates and their supporters for the high sense of political maturity they displayed.

He encouraged them to reject violence and intolerance, adding that, they should do everything to protect the peace.
Peddling lies and untruths about their political opponents to make them to look bad was not the right thing for anybody to do, he added.

Mr. Sotirios Bazikamwe, an official of the EU, pledged to give continued support to efforts at growing the nation’s democracy.
