President Akufo-Addo’s nominee for Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Berekum, has been confirmed by the assembly.
In a second confirmation process conducted by the Municipal Electoral Commission (EC) and all 64 members present and voted, the nominee Kofi Adjei obtained 61 votes, two dissented and one ballot was rejected.
In his first attempt last week, the nominee failed to garner the required number of votes to be confirmed as he obtained 35 YES votes out of the 64 member house present and voted.
27 members disapproved his nomination with 2 ballots rejected much to the disappointment of many supporters and sympathizers who trooped to the Berekum Municipal Assembly Hall to witness the process.
The MCE in his victory speech, commended the President, the assembly and all stakeholders for the confidence reposed in him and pledged to bring unity to the district.
He called on all to get on board for accelerated development.
