The National Democratic Congress (NDC) did not show up for discussions on the draft roadmap to address political vigilantism.
The NDC, one of the main stakeholders in the discussions, was absent due to circumstances beyond its control, according to the National Peace Council.
The council’s chair, Professor Emmanuel Asante, however, added that the NDC has received a copy of the draft roadmap.
The National Peace Council called on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the NDC to honestly endorse and adopt the Draft Roadmap and Code of Conduct on political vigilantism.
The document has been developed by a Technical Committee as part of ongoing dialogue aimed at ending political vigilantism.
Speaking at the commencement of today’s dialogue, Prof Asante said the document will assist existing legislations and other frameworks on ending the vigilantism.
