The Leader and Founder of the United Front Party (UFP) Nana Agyenim Boateng, is supporting the Electoral Commission to implement the regulations that require registered political parties to have offices in two-third in districts across Ghana.
According to him, the electoral commission law indicates that before a political party can qualify to contest in any general elections, it must have constituency offices across the country and if it fails to meet the EC’s regulations, then it does not qualify to contest in any election and would not be recognized.
The founder said, the Electoral Commission of Ghana has served notice to all political parties with its move towards the coming November polls and if one fails to meet the requirement, then the laws of the EC won’t allow it to contest.
In an interview with the Founder and Leader of the United Front Party, Nana Agyenim Boateng maintained that, the UFP has prepared itself to win power in this year’s election and that whatever the requirement of the EC may be; they are ready to meet it.
He said, during the meeting of all political parties with the EC, the parties which do not meet the requirement raised an objection against the intent move by the commission but to him, it is a step in a good direction.
According to him, any political party asking Ghanaians to vote it into power should have offices across the country as a way to show its presence or existence and that if one doesn’t meet the requirement, the EC must disqualify the particular political party.
Nana Agyenim Boateng, aka, Gyataba indicated Ghanaians are really suffering from hardship and as a result of that, the UFP as a political party if voted into power would address the many concerns it had recorded down and are ready to execute them.
Currently, the UFP has renovated Kunsu Basic Primary and its Junior High School which for years faced challenges of bad roofing, bad windows, doors leading to slow teaching and learning.
Nana Agyenim Boateng disclosed to this paper that the school requested for an assistance when the party was inaugurating its constituency office and as a party that has Ghana at heart to improve the living conditions of Ghanaians, “we had no option than to go into their aid”.
The UFP, he said, believes in industrialization which to him, if voted into power, the policy of expanding industries and creating job avenues for Ghanaians will come to pass.
He called on all Ghanaians to rally behind peace and vote for UFP to salvage the country from economic hardship facing the country now.
