The upcoming referendum on December 17, 2019 would determine whether Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief (MMDCEs) should be elected or not.

Member of Parliament for Tamale Central and Ranking member on Constitutional Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Inusah Fuseini is advocating that the House invites the Electoral Commission to brief it on their preparedness ahead of the referendum.

He raised the issue on the floor of the House on Friday November 8, 2019 when the Business Statement was presented on the floor of the House by the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.

“MPs as citizens of Ghana need to know about preparedness of the EC for this exercise, again when the EC receives the result it would be forwarded to the House”.

Mr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on his part noted that the demand made by the Tamale Central MP is legitimate and the issue came up at the Business Committee meeting, but “we did not know if this was the proper week to invite the EC”.

He added that all the same since the issue has come up on the floor of the House, the issue would be taken up for the EC to be invited to the House.
