Parliamentary candidates in the Kaffu Bullom chiefdom have held a meeting at the Lungi Police Station to brainstorm on how to ensure violence-free elections.
According to our roving Northern region correspondent, the meeting was summoned by the Local Unit Commander, Superintendent Abdul Karim Koroma, to outline the role of the police with special emphasis on neutrality.
Candidates of the various political parties were reminded of the fact that, “Kaffu Bullom is not only the gateway to and from the country, but it is also the cradle of democracy”.
The various political aspirants were reminded of the need for them to adhere to the code of conduct and the Public Order Act, and were further encouraged to focus on developmental issues while on the campaign trail.
They were further cautioned to desist from all forms of provocative songs and physical confrontations, and also notified that all political rallies must secure police clearances.
Superintendent Abdul Karim Koroma disclosed that no two parties would be given clearance to hold rallies on the same day.
