THE POLITICAL CLIMATE SHOULD BE ACCOMODATING TO ALL POLITICAL PARTIES

The issue of permit to use public address (PA) system in public places
by political parties should now be history. Stakeholders have
discussed this issue over and over again. The issuing of such permits
should now be routine.The Inspector General of Police (IGP) should liaise with the IEC to
find out the role of the police in elections administration   and then
organise training programmes for police officers in such matters to
avoid friction with political parties. The IGP should further equip
the administration with adequate facilities to enable them to issue
permits on time.
Political party members also have freedom of movement and association.
The IGP should ensure that the exercise of such freedom within the law
is not impeded or obstructed in anyway.
Political parties which need solidarity from other parties have the
option to call for the convening of a meeting of the interparty
committee to address their concerns.
Foroyaa will follow the relation between the law enforcement officers
and the political parties and point out any breaches of the contract
to enforce the law without favour or ill will.
