The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called on all stakeholders to accept in good faith, persons who will be nominated as Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has presented his list of nominees to the Local Government Ministry for publication.
The government has been criticised for the lack of progress in appointing new MMDCEs nine months into a new administration.
However, the Presidency has refuted assertions that development at the local level has been stalled due to the delay in appointing MMDCEs.
Addressing the media on Friday, September 17, 2021, the Director of Communication at the NPP, Yaw Buaben Asamoa charged all stakeholders to welcome the yet to be announced list of MMDCE nominees.
“We expect all stakeholders, especially party executives at the grassroots level, to accept the list that will be released in good fate.”
“Every nominee on the list is selected by the President, and we expect party grassroot executives to trust his judgement and support the approval process for these nominees. Of course, not everyone will have their preferred choice, however, we believe that as much as possible every eligible candidate must have had a fair bite of the election process.”
