Independent Committee Needed to Lead Talks On Election of MMDCEs – IDEG



The Institute for Democratic Governance (IDEG) is calling on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to establish a committee of eminent Ghanaians to lead efforts towards partisan involvement in local governance elections.

The President has reiterated his commitment to ensure that MMDCEs are elected along partisan lines.

IDEG, which is in support of the move by the President, however believes it will fail if not approached with tact.

In an interview with Citi News, Executive Director of the IDEG, Dr. Emmanuel Akwetey, indicated that it is only an independent committee that can build the needed consensus on the matter.

“I think the President should appoint eminent Ghanaians to handle this. We have diplomats and people who have gone to other countries to fix problems. Let’s not make this look as if any body handling this is inclined towards election 2024 so they are going to be bias. There is so much mistrust and suspicion.”

“The President has to lay the process. I am optimistic that we see this constitution amended for the first time in four years and a new system established, if he is able to reach political consensus.”
