Six Assembly members from the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Municipality have sued the assembly for the confirmation of the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) Alfred Amoah.
In a writ secured from the Supreme Court on Tuesday December 14, the plaintiffs among other reliefs want the superior court to declare the October confirmation unconstitutional.
“The plaintiffs state that aside a presiding member no other person can legally summon a meeting of the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Municipal Assembly to confirm or reject the defendant ‘s nomination for the position of the Municipal Chief Exvceuitve of the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Assembly,” the writ said.
19 assembly members out of which 16 are government appointees voted on October 10 this year to confirm the current MCE, Alfred Amoah.
A total of 52 members constitute the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Municipal Assembly out of which 36 are elected assembly members.
