Members of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) have confirmed Samuel Kwabena Pyne, as Mayor for the Metropolis following his victory in the Tuesday polls held at the Prempeh Assembly Hall.
Fifty-eight out of the 60 expected assembly members were present to cast their ballot. The Ashanti regional Secretary of the ruling party secured 55 Yes votes to clinch victory. The other three members voted against him.
Also, the President’s nominee for the Asokore-Mampong Municipal assembly Kennedy Kankam has also been confirmed by the Assembly members for the area.
Meanwhile, the DCE nominees for the Adaklu District and Agotime-Ziope Districts in the Volta region, have been rejected by members of their respective Assemblies during a confirmation exercise held on Monday.
The two nominees, Phanuel Kadey Donkor for Adaklu and Emelia Emefa Adziamah for the Agotime-Ziope District failed to secure the 2/3 majority threshold needed to have them confirmed as the District Chief Executive for their respective Districts.
