The legislature on Wednesday laid a Bill in Parliament to take into account the decision of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in the nation.
The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2018, which was perused out of the blue, is to change Article 243 (1) of the 1992 Constitution to accommodate a locale CEO to be chosen by all inclusive grown-up suffrage inside a region.
Its endorsement into law will end the present established game plan which engages the President to delegate MMDCEs.
Article 243 (1) of the 1992 Constitution, stipulates that: “There will be a District Chief Executive for each region who will be delegated by the President with the earlier endorsement of at the very least 66% dominant part of individuals from the Assembly present and casting a ballot at the gathering.”
A Deputy Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mr Joseph Dindiok Kpemka, Wednesday laid the Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2018 for the benefit of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Ms Gloria Akuffo.
The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye, alluded the Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2018 to the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs for thought and report.
After its considerations, the board will prescribe to the House to either pass the Bill into law or reject it.
On the off chance that the choice is for endorsement and the House so decides, the Bill will be perused a second time and afterward taken through the thought stage before it is perused a third time and passed.
