Alexander Afenyo-Markin, the Deputy Majority Leader and Member of Parliament for Effutu, has denied any role in any electoral violence in his constituency.
The legislator added that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) accused him of orchestrating violence during the most recent district-level elections in the Effutu constituency during a Monday speech to journalists.
Alexander Afenyo-Markin refuted allegations of violence during the local election process in a media interview.
He claimed that NPP members are terrified for their lives due to the NDC’s activities in the constituency.
“If it has to do with violence, we are rather afraid for our lives. We in the NPP are afraid for our lives, and I want to tell Asiedu Nketiah and his party folks that I do my politics on the strength of development. I don’t do politics of violence, I don’t attack anybody, and I don’t insult.
“I believe in an open discourse of ideas and that has been the reason why I have remained the MP and so I will not allow Asiedu Nketiah and other NDC activists who have lost the political plot and do not know how to manage my successes in Effutu to brand me. I am not into electoral violence and I do not believe in it and I have always won and won cleanly.”
