Election of MMDCEs set for 2021
June 1, 2018
The Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama (MP), has disclosed that government has developed a road map designed in phases that will highlight activities leading to elections of MMDCEs in 2021.
She said activities leading to the election of MMDCEs will be a nationwide consultative process to seek inputs for the necessary constitutional, legal and policy reviews to support the process. Article 55 (3) of the 1992 constitution, which is an entrenched clause she hinted; will have to be reviewed to pave the way for the election of MMDCEs on partisan basis.
She made these comments at Sunyani, in the Brong Ahafo region, at a sensitization workshop on the election of MMDCEs.
It was indicated at the workshop, that an Afro Barometer survey conducted in 2017 indicated that the Brong Ahafo region registered the highest score of 70 percent in favour of the election of MMDCEs.
The Regional Minister for the Brong Ahafo region, Hon. Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh, in his welcome address stressed that government was poised to entrench local governance through the direct election of MMDCEs.
The workshop was well patronized by the Security Agencies, People with Disabilities, Clergy, Traditional Authorities, Coordinating Directors and MMDCEs.
