The Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Hon. Sam Nartey George has issued a clarion call to the nation’s Peace Council to exhibit fairness at all times.

Speaking to Johnny Bresford Hughes on TV3's New Day programme, the legislator stated that he was worried hearing the General Secretary of the Peace Council, George Amoh, say that no one should disturb the Electoral Commission and that they should be allowed to do their work.

According to him, the call by the Peace Council would have been fair if the same Peace Council in 2015 when the then opposition party, the New Patriotic Party raised qualms about the voters' register as the current opposition, the National Democratic Congress have raised issues about the register had made the same call. He stated that the comment of the Peace Council in 2015 was that, per fairness, the Electoral Commission should listen to the New Patriotic Party.

He however opined that, when procurement issues were raised against Madam Charlotte Osei, the same Peace Council called for the resignation of Madam Charlotte Osei and all her Commissioners, so that investigations could be carried out without them interfering.

This he said is the level of hypocrisy that would make people say that the Peace Council that should not be partisan is beginning to show traces of partisanship.

He made it known that members of the Peace Council are people he reveres and pleaded with them for the sake of the democracy being practiced in the country that if they cannot be neutral, they should remain mute.
