The World Peace Volunteers (WPV), has appealed to all political parties and independent Presidential and Parliamentary Candidates to support and cooperate with the Electoral Commission (EC) in the conduct of the December 7, elections.
A statement signed by the President of the Association, Mr Seth Osei Acheampong, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, said a support from the parties and the public would give the Commission the backing, needed peace, and cooperation to roundup the process of December 7 polls.
The WPV also reminded all registered voters to vote in Election 2020, saying “voting is not only a constitutional right, but a civic responsibility.
“It is an opportunity to choose who you believe can lead and represent the citizenry. Failure to vote means you have left others to decide who should be your leaders and that denies you the moral right to criticize the persons selected or you when they go wrong”.
Elections, it said, were determined by voter turnout and as such, encouraged all and sundry to go out and vote peacefully for their preferred candidates.
“There should be no violence or other acrimonious activities on Election Day. The real and lasting victories are those of peace and not of confusion and chaos.
“We will not build a peaceful nation by following the wrong and negative paths. We are calling on all Ghanaians to eschew violence before, during and after the elections,” the statement said.
The WPV, called on the Security Agencies to be up to the task in ensuring a peaceful election.
“It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it. We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but on the positive affirmation of peace,” the statement advised.
