The Dormaa Central Municipal Assembly members failed in their two attempts to choose a Presiding Member on Monday.

Two candidates, Nicholas Ntow and Atta Twum, failed to receive the necessary two-thirds of the total votes cast after the 45 newly elected assembly members were sworn in.

The candidates failed to persuade a portion of the assembly members to cast their votes, they told Adom News.

The two political parties have solidified their stances on the candidates they back, according to other claims as well.

Despite being upset with the outcome of the event, Dormaa Central MCE Drissa Ouattara expressed optimism that a consensus would be reached and a Presiding Member would be elected at the subsequent meeting.

Mohammed Amin Adam, the Minister of State in charge of the Finance Ministry, had earlier threatened to have catastrophic effects on the assembly’s finances if they failed to pick a head of state.

In a similar vein, the Presiding Member of the Dormaa West and Dormaa East Assemblies was not elected.
