Newsfile on Saturday will discuss the phenomenon of chiefs endorsing politicians, especially during election year.

Some chiefs have openly declared support for presidential candidates of some political parties in the country ahead of the December 7, elections.

Some chiefs, including the Paramount Chief of Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Area, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II and Omanhene of Mehame Traditional Area, Nana Owusu Kontoh II have openly declared support for some candidates at various events.

The Chief of Dormaa also endorsed the former president during his visit to the Bono region.

They have been criticised those involved in the act but legal practitioner Martin Kpebu has disagreed saying they should be allowed to state their opinion.
