Assembly Members for the Awutu Senya West District have voted to reject the President’s nominee, Moses Arhinful Acquah, as the District Chief Executive (DCE). Out of the 35 total votes cast, he secured 19 yes votes, 15 no votes with one spoilt ballot. Per the local governance act, the nominee needed to secure 24 votes representing two-thirds of the total votes cast, and a re-election had been scheduled to take place in 10 days.

Speaking after the exercise, Central Regional Minister, Mrs Justina Marigold Assan, emphasized the ultimate responsibility of the Assembly to ensure the district’s development. She urged the Assembly members to bury their differences and consider the development of the Assembly as paramount.

In an interview with Mr. Richard Ghartey, Presiding Member of the District Assembly, he expressed disappointment in the results of the elections and reiterated the need to prioritize the progress of the area.
