Stop Preventing Candidates from Entering Villages
***Councilors’ Actions Condemned***
The Central Province police boss has condemned the actions of certain village councilors and leaders who have been preventing candidates from entering their villages.
Provincial commander Laimo Asi said they have identified certain leaders who have been rejecting candidates, who are not from their village, from conducting campaigns in their areas.
“This attitude is bad and not healthy for the community. How could a so-called leader do such bias practice in your community? We all come from the same district.”
The provincial police commander says such practices are the beginning of bad leadership and corrupt attitude.
“I want to encourage all the people in Central Province to make use of this opportunity by allowing every individual candidates contesting in their respective electorate to visit their community/ward to conduct their campaign so that people must have the opportunity to ask questions and gauge their view to elect their member with their own choice.”
The PPC further says people’s mind must not be controlled by money or food.
“Practice of corruption must be avoided at all cost.”
