The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) has for the second time ranked the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) as the party most fond of using foul and abusive language.
“Officials, affiliates and supporters of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) topped the list of culprits with a total of 26 incidents. This was followed by the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the unregistered New Labour Party (NLP) with four (4) indecent expressions each. The others are: Progressive People’s Party (PPP) – two (2), the National Democratic Party (NDP) – one (1) and the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) – one (1),” the report shows.
The index by the MFWA forms part of efforts to ensure that political parties use decent language ahead of the much anticipated general elections which comes up in November.
