The Government of Ghana has created 38 new municipal and district assemblies in addition to the 216 existing ones.

This brings the number to 254.

Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama, laid the Legislative Instrument to back the creation.

She told journalists that: “We have some districts that the president has elevated into municipalities and those are not new but just elevation”.

She added: “Within the Metropolitan Assemblies, some have grown big, so for instance, Ayawaso East has been divided into a municipality, same as Kwadaso and Oforikrom. We have not created any district that will necessitate the creation of constituencies. So we have some constituencies which have been turned into districts.”

“We have created from scratch 38 new districts. We have settled on the capitals. If there are agitations we’ll look at it,” the Minister said.
