MOST REV. DAVID VUNAGI APPEALED FOR SENSITIVITY AND PEACE
The Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Melanesia has appealed for sensitivity and peace as people wait in anticipation for the results of the National General Elections.
Speaking to SIBC News today, the Most Reverend David Vunagi said elections were completed peacefully yesterday.
The Archbishop also appealed to candidates, to demonstrate sensitivity and act peaceful, in their win or loss.
“I think the wining candidates must advise their supporters to accept the results with thanksgiving to God and with humility. They must avoid celebrations that are confrontational and provocative in nature. They must be sensitive and take others into consideration. So whatever celebrations they will do today or when the results come out if they can do that with humility. To the losing candidates I wish to remind them if they could advise their supporters to concede with thanksgiving and appreciation, that is they must aspire to work closely and support the wining candidates in every step of the way until the next general election.”
