Berekum, July 22, GNA - Mr Kofi Adomah, Brong Ahafo Regional Director of National Commission on Civic Education, said on Wednesday that the outcome of the December elections would depend largely on the level of consciousness among the people about constitutional provisions.

In attendance were representatives of security agencies, political parties, opinion leaders and other identifiable stakeholders. The Regional Director appealed to the youth and politicians to appreciate civil and political rights of others and guard against dirty politicking that could endanger the peace.
