Mr. Obeng Asiedu, District Director for National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) for Asante Akyem North, has announced that his outfit is set for the organisation of a parliamentary debate for all aspirants vying for the parliamentary seat in the Constituency.
The debate would give room for all aspirants to sell out their campaign message to Ghanaians and was one of the NCCE’s core mandates to educate the public. The debate will provide a platform for constituents and the Parliamentary candidates to interact, to solicit commitments from the candidates to issue-Based Campaigning, to provide a non-violent campaign season and to ensure tolerance and peace before, during and after elections.
The essence of the debate is to afford the electorate the opportunity to hear from the candidates' responses to their issues of concern.
The Issues of concern to the Ghanaian voter have been captured in the research findings of the NCCE for Elections 2020 which have been centred on Education, Health, Employment, Women and Children, Agriculture, Roads and Infrastructure, Corruption, Social Services, Sports, Economy, Energy, National Security, Housing, Youth Development and Employment.
Our checks to Adanse3 fm say all the two contesting Parliamentary candidates have confirmed their participation.
They are; Andy Kwame Appiah-Kubi, incumbent NPP Member of Parliament for Asante Akyem north candidate and Alhaji Sule Adams Yussif, the National Democratic congress ( NDC) candidate.
The debate is slated for November 30, this year, at the Apostolic Church Auditorium, Agogo
