A scene from Jueaben
My colleagues elected Assembly Members are expressing fears over this intimidatory tactics adopted to towards our scheduled assembly meeting today to decide on the nominee for the MCE position of the Juaben Municipality.
As a Presiding Member, I have no idea how the military got involved in a normal democratic process. I do not know who invited the military and why they were invited. We did not need the military in the last two meetings that saw the rejection of the nominee. Why should we need the military presence now? This is the same act of intimidation and violence used to prevent elected Assembly Men from exercising their rightful duty in Kumawu. This is undemorctic.
I call on all stakeholders to intervene with immediate effect to coil any acts that will jeopardize our democracy.
This is embarrassing to say the least. My colleague Assembly Members and I the Presiding Member have decided to boycott today’s election process until we are given the full assurance of the commitment of all stakeholders to ensure the right thing is done.
From PM’s desk,
Juaben Municipal Assembly.
