Mr Love Alistar, the Assembly Member for Amasaman Electoral Area has been elected as the Presiding Member (PM) for Ga West Municipal Assembly.
He polled 20 votes while his contestant, Mr Kwame Appiah, Assembly Member for Mayera had five votes whilst one vote was rejected.
The election was keen as the two contenders could not meet the two-thirds majority vote requirement until the fifth round of voting, where Mr Alistar emerged the victor.
Mr Michael Boamah, the Electoral Commissioner for Ga West in an interview with the Ghana News Agency lauded the assembly members for bringing the election of the PM to a close after the hectic five times voting, and expressed the hope that it would take long for Mr Alistar to be sworn into office.
Mr Clement Nii Lamptey Wilkinson, the Municipal Chief Executive for Ga West asked the assembly members to cooperate with the newly elected PM for the speedy development of the municipality.
Mr Elias K. Mensah, the Ga West Municipal Coordinating Director expressed happiness for the election of the PM, which he said would facilitate the work of the Assembly to bring progress for the area.
