President Akufo-Addo’s nominee for the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly (CCMA), Chief Executive position, Mr Ernest Arthur has been rejected by the assembly members.
In a vote for his endorsement on Monday (September 27), he polled 34 out of 65 valid votes cast.
31 Assembly Members voted NO for his renomination.
He needed 44 of the valid votes to be confirmed as MCE.
In June this year, Members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Cape Coast Metropolis made a passionate appeal to President Akufo Addo not to re-nominate their sitting MCE, Mr Ernest Arthur.
They accused him of poor performance, poor human relations and the use of abusive language.
They have also appealed to the President to reject any candidate that he (Mr Ernest Arthur) would put forward to replace him as MCE for Cape Coast Metropolis in case he is not re-nominated.
According to them, Mr. Ernest Arthur is bragging that even if he was not re-nominated to continue his second term of office, he will support one Lawyer Daniel Arthur to be appointed as MCE to be doing his bidding.
