President re-nominates Joshua Nii Bortey

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has re-nominated Joshua Nii Bortey for confirmation as Chief Executive of the Krowor Municipal Assembly in Accra.

A statement signed and issued in Accra yesterday by the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama, asked the Regional Minister to liaise with the Regional Electoral Commission to conduct the election to confirm the appointment of Mr Bortey.

In a previous election earlier this year, Mr Bortey failed to secure two-thirds of the vote of the Assembly members engaged in the process.

Out of the 14 that voted, five voted ‘yes’ while eight rejected his appointment with one rejected ballot paper recorded.

Following the re-appointment, the Regional Coordinating Council is thus mandated by law to lead the process in confirming the Chief Executive.
