THE PRESIDENT’S TOUR

The president has commenced a tour that has attracted attention. This is because the expectation. Many are of the opinion that the executive should not campaign for political parties during other public elections such as National Assembly elections.

This is because of the fact that the president is deemed to be above party loyalties. The executive branch of the state is separated from the legislature which should require a new approach by the executive to ensure its integrity. It is hoped that the lessons gathered from the grassroots would inform the executive to change its position. It is party officials that should go and promote the interest of their parties and candidates. Members of the executive should stay clear.
