Maintain a peaceful environment during Dec 7 elections – IPSPJ to EC, political parties
In a news release on International Day of Peace, the body reminded all Ghanaians to figure towards building a peaceful coexistence and uphold peace before, during and after the December 7 elections.
“The 2020 Theme: Shaping Peace Together can’t be more relevant than a time when the state is preparing for its general elections,” Country Director Ambassador Alexander Obeng Boateng said.
“Each year the International Day of Peace is observed round the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as each day dedicated to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.
“The day is additionally an excellent reminder to the election management body and therefore the Security Service to uphold problems with safety within the conduct of the polls” he added.
The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly.
Two decades later, in 2001, the overall Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire. The United Nations invites all nations and other people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues associated with peace.
