Although voting in the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections has only started, the main challenges that attended the 2012 elections have not been experienced, the Member of Parliament for Adentan, Emmanuel Nii Ashie-Moore, has observed.

According to him, there is the need for voters to continue the peaceful start to this year’s elections, bearing in mind that “we are one”.

Speaking in an interview with Accra News’ Blakk Eye on Wednesday morning in the Adentan constituency, Mr Ashie-Moore said: “So far it has been very peaceful. I am expecting that turnout will be high.

“We pray that this election will be free and fair as has started. We are all one. When we go to parliament, we all live as one. And so let us ensure peace in this election. The media sometimes twist the message but Ghana has become stronger.

“In 2012 we had several issues but this time around we are not seeing those issues; Ghana will win, Adentan will win.”

Mr Ashie-Moore was optimistic that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will retain the seat in the constituency.
