CCEM holds meeting with political parties

Chakhesang Clean Election Movement (CCEM) organised a joint meeting with various groups including political party workers and prayer centres/houses in Phek district in the conference hall of Chakhesang Baptist Church Council (CBCC), Pfütsero on October 25.
In a press release, CCEM stated that the joint meeting resolved to safeguard Christian faith, socio-cultural values and Naga identity.
The members resolved to work together to usher peace and tranquillity during the election and not to mislead public through hate speech or character assassination against any candidates or parties. The participants also resolved to organise an open platform and to discourage individual or house to house campaign.
Earlier, CCEM chairman, Rev. Vezopa Rhakho gave an overview about the clean election movement while CBCC executive secretary, Rev. Khrotso Mero stressed that the people have been passive for too long.
Rev. Khrotso also pointed out that it was time that they become active in working for the betterment of the society. In this regard, he called upon leaders of various groups to work together and elect the leaders in all honesty.
Chakhesang Public Organisation (CPO) president Vezuhu Keyho also spoke on the need to change the system and urged upon the leaders present, not to misguide voters but instead educate them.
Over 70 participants that attended the meeting resolved to support Nagaland Baptist Churches Council (NBCC) and CCEM’s clean election guidelines and principles.
Further, CCEM reminded that it would continue educating people about the clean election movement during the election.
