National Security Minister, Albert Kan-Dapaah wants perpetrators engaged in electoral violence to be punished or the act will never stop.

According to him, election violence has been a worry over the years after insisting some measures must be put in place to “stop” the act.

“If crime is not punished it encourages others to do it,” Kan-Dapaah said when he appeared before the Emile Short Commission probing the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election shooting incident on Thursday, 31 January 2019.

Mr Kan-Dapaah however urged the Commission to help in dealing with the situation which political parties see as a norm mainly during bye-election.

“We have this violence associated with by-elections over the years and no one has been punished. I hope this Commission will find a solution to this evil,” he said.
