Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that eight political parties in Ghana are bracing up for a demonstration on Thursday, February 7, 2019.
The Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty, which is made up of eight political parties, will hit the streets over the violence that rocked the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
The parties involved are the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Convention People’s Party (CPP), the Ghana Consolidated People’s Party (GCPP), the Democratic People’s Party (DPP), the People’s National Convention (PNC), United Front Party (UFP), the EAGLE Party and the All People’s Congress (APC).
In a statement released by the group, they hope to send a message to the government “about the barbaric and brutal violence that characterized the conduct of the elections as well as the growing atmosphere of insecurity in the country.”
Bernard Mornah, the convener of the street protest, said in a press statement that the opposition parties hope to draw public attention to the “looming threat on Ghana’s democracy, peace and stability."
Myjoyonline.com reports that they are also demanding proper and speedy investigations into events of the by-election that took place on Thursday, January 31, 2019.
“As required by the Public Order Act 1994, Act 491, we wrote to notify the police, and have subsequently had a fruitful meeting with the Greater Accra Regional Command.
We assured them of our commitment to conduct a very peaceful and non-violent demonstration,” the statement said.
The converging point for the demonstration is the Old Obra Spot, Kwame Nkrumah Circle at 6am.
The MP, in a video, appeared to be questioning the security personnel during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
