African Peace Magazine Arrives Equatorial Guinea To Monitor Elections

The African Peace Magazine, UK, has received full accreditation to observe the 2022 Equatorial Guinea General Elections as an international election observer.

A report by our Correspondent said the team was led by its publisher, Noah Ajare, and many other members of the organisation, to watch and monitor the elections.

I’m this regard, Ajare disclosed the relevance of a peaceful election to the development and political growth of a nation while urging voters to demonstrate serene morale before, during and after the polls.

His words: “It (election) is very important because it is one of the core determinants of a peaceful state. It boosts the socio-economic, development, and growth of a country,” he said.

Ajare stressed the need for media participation and engagement in the promotion of peaceful polls.

He, therefore, pointed out that Equatorial Guinea elections were scheduled to be held on Sunday, November 20, 2022, as citizens of the country cast their votes for candidates of their choice for the presidency, members of Parliament, alongside local seats.
