Press Statement on the Current Political Situation in Ghana
Released on Wednesday April 18, 2012
Distinguished ladies and gentlemen of the media we have invited you here this morning to share with you our perspectives on some of the troubling political developments in our country as we prepare towards the December 2012 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
The CFIin its periodic review of the political situation in the country ahead of the December 2012 Elections has observed the steady spread and escalation of lawlessness across the country. There have been isolated incidents of violence at various registration centres. Political opponents have been physically and verbally attacked while exercising their rights to register; some citizens have also been unlawfully denied their right to register based on either ethnicity or an allegation that they are not ordinarily resident in the registration area. The latest incident is a blatant incitement of ethno-political violence and reckless resort to hate-speech by leading politicians and their supporters. In all these cases, extremists within the rival parties, the NDC and the NPP,are the ones setting the tone of political debate and intolerance towards fellow citizens.
