Presidential nominee for the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly, Ernest Arthur has been confirmed as the Chief Executive of the area after being rejected twice members of the assembly.
Mr. Arthur secured 45 out of the 63 votes cast.
The voting did not go on smoothly as a fight emerged after an unidentified person allegedly snatched some ballot papers.
Policemen present had a hard time calming the assembly members down when the confusion broke.
The riotous assembly members took no notice of the presence of the Omanhen of the Oguaa Traditional area, Osabarimba Kwesi Atta.
According to the now confirmed MCE, it’s been a drawback as it’s the handiwork of the Cape Coast MP whose party faithful were not in support of his nomination due to the political differences.
He however stated that the division in the assembly would not reflect his work because he is not a divisive person. “I will work together in harmony with elected and appointed members in the area, ” he assured.
