The opinion polls for next Thursday's UK general elections are indicating a hung parliament, in other words no party can win clear majority to form a government on its own. The Scottish National party(SNP) had made it clear they will never enter into any form of alliance or coalition with the Conservative party because of their ideological differences, but they will consider entering into alliance or collaboration with the Labour Party, if the terms are good.

Am I missing something in our politics? Since the advent of the 4th Republican Constitution, if my memory serves me right, I can't remember any major issue where all the parties particularly NDC and NPP had reached a consensus.
I have pondered many times and have nearly given up on writing this piece. I have really wanted to push the thoughts aside as they came. But it appears I have no other option than to sit and put this together.
My people(Dagombas) have a proverb: If Market day is going to be a success , yo will start seeing the signs in the morning. The unabated confusion in the NPP's camp: confusion over their affirmative action policy,who is leading their campaign, attempts by some regional executive members to sideline the chairman and Gen.
