KMA Presiding Member election postponed again

kmaThe Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly has once again postponed the Presiding Member elections.

The Assembly was expected to go to the polls for the ninth time on Friday, September 30, to elect a presiding member but the election has been postponed to Tuesday, 4th October, 2016.

The decision to postpone the latest election comes after it was revealed that there will be no available Judge to swear into office a Presiding Member elect since Judges in Kumasi are in Accra for a programme.

The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly has failed to elect a Presiding Member on eight different occasions.

In July this year, the Mayor of Kumasi Kojo Bonsu, resigned after he was alleged to have disrespected the Kumasi Traditional Council.

The Assembly has since been without a Metropolitan Chief Executive and Presiding Member for several months, and efforts to elect a new Presiding Member on several occasions has failed.

Residents have expressed concerns that the inability to elect a new presiding member is affecting the progress and development of Kumasi.

Abraham Boadi, assembly member for the Ridge Nhyeaso Electoral area and a favorite to win the KMA Presiding Member election told Starr News that he is hopeful he will win the election next Tuesday.
