The Minority in Parliament says they will summon the Minister for Local Government and Regional Reorganisation, Mr. Dan Botwe to answer why the President has delayed in appointing Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) for his second term.
Speaking to Citi News, the Member of Parliament for Odododiodoo and Ranking Member on the Local Government and Rural Development Committee of Parliament, Nii Lante Vanderpuiye said the minister will be hauled before the house when Parliament resumes from recess in October and the president hasn’t released the list of MMDCEs.
“We are waiting if, by the time Parliament reconvenes, the list has not been given, we are going to summon the Minister for Local Government and Regional Reorganisation to answer and tell us why this undue delay is happening.”
“This has never happened in the history of this country. If this is his [President Akufo-Addo’s] first term, we would have given him that benefit of the doubt but the President has no excuse for this in his second term.”
