The purpose of this gathering, which took place at the Assin State College SHS, was to foster communication, mutual understanding, and cooperation between the political parties and the police force.
The topics covered during the meeting encompassed a wide range of issues, including security arrangements, the prevention of electoral malpractices, and the crucial role of law enforcement in creating a conducive atmosphere for fair and transparent elections.
Stressing on the need for a peaceful and well-organized electioneering process, the IGP duly addressed any concerns or issues raised by the NDC and NPP executives.
The meeting also provided an avenue for the NDC and NPP executives to foster a spirit of cooperation and understanding. They acknowledged the importance of peaceful coexistence and working together for the betterment of Assin North.
