Previously the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives were being appointed by a ruling Government to be a representative at the various Assemblies.


According to Ghanaians majority of the MMDCEs after being appointed by a ruling Government feel superior within designated Assembly whereas they fail to engage themselves in developmental projects , hence call for an election of the Chief Executives.


However the President of the Republic of Ghana, HE. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in his 2019 State of the Nation Address indicated that the Bill for the amendment of Article 55(3) of the 1992 Constitution has been gazetted, to pave way for the election of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).

Delivering the State of Nation Address (SONA) on the occasion of Opening of Parliament during his first term adminstration in 2019, stated that the amendment will help in a direct and popular election, on partisan basis, of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives.


Presenting his speech at the Plenary, the President called for a repetition of the bi-partisan support that made possible the hugely successful outcomes in the referenda for the new regions, to ensure the success of the impending referendum.


However Ghanaians have suggested the inclusion of Unit Committee Members at the election of MMDCEs.
