Members of the Adaklu District Assembly in the Volta region on Friday rejected Mr Bright Kwame Nyatsikor, the new District Chief Executive (DCE) nominee for the area.
Mr Nyatsikor, who is the Volta Regional Public Relations Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), got nine yes votes with 10 voting against him, representing 47.4 per cent.
Mr Nyatsikor was nominated after members of the Assembly failed to confirm Mr Phanuel Kadey Donkor, who was renominated on two occasions.
Earlier, some government appointees had their appointment revoked to make way for the appointment of new ones.
The development, according to some members of the Assembly, did not meet their expectations.
Mr Nyatsikor, who is also a member of the Volta Regional Communication Team of the New Patriotic Party NPP, failed to meet the two-thirds majority as required by the local government Act.
The 38-year-old holds a Master of Arts Degree in Development Communication from the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agricultural Engineering from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
The exercise was witnessed by Dr Archibald Letsa, the Volta Regional Minister, and some government officials.
