Tema, Jan 15, GNA –
The Ghana Federation of Labour (GFL) has appealed to political parties and
other stakeholders to seek the nation’s peace and harmony in the ongoing new vote registration saga.
“We appeal to
the parties to place PEACE AND HARMONY in the country above any RIGHTS which
could plunge the country into abyss of social and economic destruction, ”
the GFL said in a statement signed by Mr
Caleb Nartey and Mr Abraham Koomson, President and General Secretary,
According to the
statement, the Federation was extremely alarmed about the escalating feud
between the Coalition of the Minority Political Parties, the Civil Society
Organizations and the Electoral Commission over the status of the existing
voters’ register and the timing of fresh compilation of a new voters’ register.
It stressed that
“recounting the fallout of the process of registering as a Ghanaian
citizen(NID) and the very recent revision of the Voters Register, we urge both
parties in this impasse to exercise maximum restraint in pursuit of RIGHTS and
The GFL said it was
advocating for consensus building, which must involve all stakeholders
including the National Peace Council.
