Tonight on JoyNews, PM Express took another look at the confirmation of President Akufo-Addo’s nominees for the Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executive (MMDCE) positions.

This comes after several confrontations witnessed during the confirmation of some MCEs and DCEs.

In Wa, there were mixed feelings among Assembly Members, the political class, and observers present at the Wa Municipal Assembly Conference Hall when at the end of counting of ballots, Alhaji Moomen secured 29 Yes votes as against 16 No.

The heavy presence of armed police personnel did not prevent tempers from rising inside the hall. This resulted in pockets of violence that led to the arrest of two persons.

Meanwhile, Ranking Member on the Local Government Committee of Parliament, Nii Lante Vanderpuye has bemoaned the use of force on Assembly Members, prevention of qualified members from entering voting centres plus the forceful eviction of some members from voting centres.

According to him, such developments nullify the confirmation of some of the nominees.

In view of this, the Minority in Parliament has demanded a re-run of the confirmation processes of some MMDCE nominees.

Host, Evans Mensah interacted with Mr Lante Vanderpuye, Sylvester Tetteh, who is a member of Local Government and Rural Development Committee in Parliament and Local Governance expert, Dr Eric Oduro Osae to probe the Minority’s position.
