As political activities gains momentum, PPRC Chairman, Abdulai Masiyambay Bangurah Esq, has expressed optimism that he expects heightened political tolerance, free and unhindered access of political parties to all communities, and a quiet and peaceful campaign, which is the precursor to a free fair transparent and credible election.

He expressed that sentiment at the end of the Commission’s Unhindered Access engagements with Paramount Chiefs across the country, during which he also said that he expects mutual respect between Politicians and the electorates and Traditional Authorities.

Reacting to the issue of the commitment made by Paramount Chiefs, he said he expects constant communication and engagement on emerging issues, relative to the campaign trail and the role of traditional leaders.

He admonished political parties and their supporters and Independent Candidates to be respectful to Paramount Chiefs and informed them of their campaign activities in their Chiefdoms.  Political Parties, he says, must be peaceful and civil in the conduct of their campaigns frankly assessing the campaigns so far as being relatively and substantially peaceful.

“There is room for improvement, but we will continue to guide the process, with an intention to curb the challenges” he concluded.
