The Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama was at NCCE to explain to management and staff the roadmap for the election of MMDCEs in 2021. According to the Minister, the most crucial part of the roadmap is a referendum to amend Article 55(3) of the 1992 Constitution which prevents political parties from participating in district level elections. The Minister believes that NCCE has the capacity to sensitize and educate citizens on activities leading to the referendum and election of MMDCEs hence her visit to engage NCCE on the planned process for the national exercise. The Hon. Minister and senior officials from the Ministry took NCCE through the roadmap for the elections.
