The Member of Parliament for Mfantseman West Aquinas Quansah has been appointed as the Deputy minister-designate for the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.

President John Evans Attah Mills appointed him in his latest reshuffle which was released on Tuesday 15th February 2011.

Hon. Aquinas Quansah is regarded as a grass roots person who is very good at mobilization and his appointment to the Local Government ministry is seen by political pundits, as a strategic move especially as 2012 election beckons, since that ministry plays a vital role during electioneering campaigns.

Hon. Quansah who is serving his first term of office came to Parliament after beating the then Minister of Information and National Orientation, Stephen Asamoah Boateng at the 2008 parliamentary polls.
