A group of supporters of the newly formed Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) in the Upper West
Region have urged the Party's leadership to speed up its registration processes that would give it the necessary legal backing. This, they said would allow them to begin their political education programmes in earnest.

The group numbering 56, who described themselves as the founding members of the Party in the region and its representatives in the ten constituencies of the region, said in a statement issued in Wa on Thursday that, they were convinced that democracy could only be nurtured in an atmosphere devoid of violence, acrimony, vindictiveness and vendetta and the DFP stood for that. "We have observed that DFP stands up tall in resisting and denouncing these negative tendencies that usually militate against the positive development of political parties in developing countries, particularly Africa".

The statement signed by their spokesman, Mr Kwame Mumuni, a Wa based businessman, observed with indignation "the emerging culture of some members of the older parties casting insinuations at people, who have defected or resigned from these parties on principle to join the DFP". "That cannot in anyway intimidate anybody but will rather strengthen our resolve, as there are millions of silent supporters of our cause for the betterment of the country".

They said people would begin to come to terms with the reality of the DFP in the region after it had registered with the Electoral Commission. The statement assured the leadership of the new party that its rank and file in the region would conduct their activities in a most civilized and peaceful manner in consonance with its motto "Service in Freedom". They, therefore, advised the other political parties, especially the older ones to conduct their activities in accordance with the rules so that the nation could have a peaceful general election in 2008.
