With the successful abstention by overwhelming solidarity conveys the powerful message through our actions to those who are in the helm of power that the voices of EN populace can be no longer ignored nor silenced,” read the statement.

Stating that the effort won’t go unnoticed, the CSOs assured to go the extra mile until their voices are heard and their grievances addressed, while seeking continued support from the public.
