Obuasi, Aug 25, GNA- One hundred and fifteen thousand (115,000) Polling Station Executives of New Patriotic Party (NPP) would be trained in scientific campaigning strategies, to ensure the victory of the ruling Party, in Election 2004.
Mr Dan Botwe, General Secretary of the Party, who announced this at Obuasi, said the days of shouting political slogans were over. He was interacting with newsmen, after opening a three-day

Mr Botwe said the workshop participants would submit programmes of action for the training of five polling station executives in all the polling stations in the Region.
