Politics of Saturday, 5 December 2015
The Chairman and Leader of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Prof. Edmund N. Delle has urged the country’s politicians to desist from character assassination and politics of insults.
According to Prof. Delle, the CPP had always upheld discipline and comradeship and is, therefore, calling on all other parties to do same.
In a statement Prof. Delle declared “ I strongly oppose this current phenomenon which has led to gross indiscipline among our youth and adults.”
He entreated all political party communicators to execute their analysis and debates on both radio and television devoid of insult and character assassination.
“These days, it does not matter one’s social standing; it does not matter the issue at stake; somehow, all our public debates degenerate into insults, invectives, insinuations and name-calling. I strongly oppose this current phenomenon which has led to gross indiscipline among our youth and adults,” he lamented.
He said that the CPP was determined to change the status quo and help eliminate what has now become a competition among party communicators: the competition that rewards those who insult best. Surely, our country deserves better than this.”
