The Inter Religious Council has been pursuing the idea of a national dialogue that would bring all political players in the same fray to discuss issues pertaining to the government and avoid a political impasse in the country.

The Inter Religious Council brings together all religious denominations in the country including the Catholics, the Anglican and Islam faiths, the Seventh day Adventist, the Orthodox faith and the born-again churches.

The idea of the dialogue has faced numerous resistance especially from the state, and leading opposition politicians for years now.

Once achieved, this will be the first ever dialogue involving all Political Parties in the Country.

Meanwhile, the FDC Party challenges the Electoral Commission to gazette all local Council Leaders who were recently elected in the council polls.

The country went to polls on 10th July for village local councils, which were largely swept by the ruling National Resistance Movement.
