OVER-BLOATING OF GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENT TO DISTRICT ASSEMBLIES BREEDS CONFUSION


Confusion erupted in Sekondi Takoradi after some district assembly members challenged government’s procedure of selecting appointees to the assembly.

Some of the protesting assembly members were whisked away by macho men, but it is not clear where the macho men came from or who sent them.

However sources say some agitating assembly members have been accusing the DCE of appointing more than 30% as required under the local government law.

The situation was the same in the Eastern Region, where some members in the assembly complained about government procedure in appointing district assembly members.

However, the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Samuel Ofosu–Ampofo has denied that the government over-bloated the government’s appointments to the district assemblies to give the advantage to the government.

The minister also says gazetting the list of DA members is only a prerequisite to inauguration the Das when there are electoral disputes.

He says since there are no electoral disputes the inauguration of the district assemblies can go.
