Assembly Member objects the process of selection of WMA delegates for the Council of State election
The Assembly Member for Kperisi Electoral Area, James Kuunsaana Donkor has objected to the process that led to the selection of some Assembly Members of the Wa Municipal Assembly (WMA) as delegates for the upcoming Council of State elections.
In a letter copied to Info Radio, the Assembly Member stated that the Assembly did not hold any meeting to build consensus or elect the said persons to represent members in the election.
Information gathered by Info Radio shows that Abdul Rahaman Topie, who is the presiding member of the Assembly and Adams Mahamood Mumuni were the members who have been chosen to represent the Assembly in the Council of State election.
However, James Kuunsaana Donkor contents that the said members do not qualify per the law to participate in the election in the name of the Wa Municipal Assembly.
“The law requires that there should be a meeting at which a consensus is reached or failing which an election is conducted among members so that the person(s) who win will represent the assembly.”
James Donkor opined that, the persons were not selected through due process and do not qualify per the law to represent the Wa Municipal Assembly as delegates in the Council of State election.
He therefore objected to what he described as wrongful selection and representation while calling for the right process to be applied in accordance with the laid down procedure and the law.
James Kuunsaana Donkor is the immediate past Public Relations Officer of the Wa Municipal Assembly.
