The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) today condemned the “malicious damage” of a
campaign vehicle belonging to one of its candidates.
The party said in a statement that the vehicle of St. John s Rural East candidate Vere Cornelius was vandalised overnight.
He observed that a missile had been thrown into the windscreen which caused the glass to shatter and crack in all directions thereby rendering it temporarily inoperable.
“We totally condemn and repudiate any and all acts of violence, intimidation, victimization and fear which have, in recent times, begun to characterize our politics,” the DNA said.
“We call upon ALL political operatives and their supporters to cease and desist from resorting to violence in the campaign,” it added.
The statement called the act “dastardly and cowardly” and said it demonstrates that the DNA is a serious contender to win the election.
