CCEM reminds candidates of their obligations
Dimapur, Feb. 10 (EMN): Chakhesang Clean Election Movement (CEM) has organised a special prayer service for all the contesting candidates in the forthcoming state assembly election 2018 at the conference hall of CBCC Mission Centre, T Chikri, in Pfütsero town on February 10.
Altogether 15 candidates from four constituencies including one and the first lady by name Rekha Rose will contest from Phek district.
Dr. Küzhopoyo Tünyi, CCEM convenor, led the service, while Rev. Dr. Vezopa Tetseo, CBCC executive secretary, led the devotion and exhorted all to stand firm in their faith as baptized members and not to be swept away in times of trial by upholding the Bible portion in Psalms 33:12-20.
Rev. Khrütsoyi Lüruo urged the leaders to keep their identity clear by standing firm as Nagas and believers of Christ Jesus and together build the broken walls of the land.
Kekhwengulo Lea, CPO president, shared the concerns of the society and how elected members must commit themselves to serve the citizens. He said that though the political party principles differ from one another, they all have to focus on building of their people and bring the required developments in their time. He also advised them to keep good relations among themselves and represent the tribe and district well to state, and as a state to the nation.
All the 13 candidates who attended the service shared their mind in brief.
In conclusion, the congregation stood and prayed for the candidates. The meeting was attended by the office bearers from CPO- the apex body, CMA, CYF, CSU and church leaders of all denominations.
