Don't Vote 'Skirt & Blouse'

By Eunice Asiedua Kotoku, Ashiaman -

Alfred Kwame Agbesi, incumbent NDC Member of Parliament for Ashaiman, has asked supporters of the NDC to avoid the temptation of voting “skirt and blouse” at the December 7 poll.

He alleged at a party rally here on Sunday that some 'elements' in the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP)  were coaxing NDC supporters at Ashaiman to vote “shirt and blouse,” that is, to vote for the NDC's flag-bearer, Professor Mills and the NPP's parliamentary candidate in the constituency.

Mr. Agbesi therefore, appealed to the NDC supporters not to be deceived into voting for any parliamentary candidate except him.

He also advised Ghanaians to vote for parliamentary candidates who can represent their interest and aspirations.

“Parliamentary work is not Unit Committee work,” he said, adding that care must be taken to choose a candidate who can best address present socio-economic challenges.

Mr. Agbesi promised to do more for the people of Ashaiman when the NDC regains power.

Dan Abodakpi, MP for Keta, contributing, said an NDC government would ensure that people are employed based on their competence and not on partisan or political lines, saying that opportunities would be available for all to ensure the effective realisation of national development efforts.
