The Menace of Political Party Vigilantism: Reflections from Cape Coast

Posted on Jul-28 2017

The Central regional capital of the Cape Coast took its turn to host the CODEO nationwide round table on the menace of political party vigilantism. After fruitful deliberations with our stakeholders at the Ridge Royal Hotel, a formal statement was released via a press confab today. On solutions to curbing this menace, our stakeholders noted that: 1. There should be security of tenure for the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and all heads of other security agencies. 2. Politicians should make realistic campaign promises to manage the high expectations of their grassroots supporters and finally as expressed in previous regional round table discussions, the Electoral Commission (EC) is enjoined to be more transparent, professional and independent in the conduct of its activities. The EC should open up to more consultation on critical electoral issues to avoid suspicion from stakeholders. Read more in the full statement released today.
