The Convention People’s Party has urged the country's politicians to desist from character assassination and politics of insults.

In a statement signed by the Chairman and Leader of the CPP, Prof. Edmund N. Delle, the party said it would eliminate the unfortunate trend that ‘has become a competition among political party communicators.'

Read full statement below.

I have observed with concern a trend that is fast and deeply eating into our body politic today. 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.

As a party, we have put in place measures to educate our members to eschew politics of insults and we call on all other parties to do same. The CPP has always upheld discipline and comradeship.

I entreat all political party communicators to execute their analysis and debates on both radio and television, devoid of insult and character assassination.

The CPP is determined to change the status-quo and help eliminate what has now become a competition among party communicators: the competition that rewards those that insult best. Surely, our country deserves better than this. Our country must work again.

God bless our Home Land Ghana!
