Reactions continue to pour in over the formal announcement of nominees for Metropolitan, Munical and District Assembly, MMDA, positions.
The announcement was made on Sunday, September 19 by Dan Botwe, the Minister for Local Government, when he spoke at a Ministry of Information press briefing in Accra.
Over in Chereponi, the announcement triggered violent protests that led to the burning of a party office. Tema Central also experienced some protests after the announcement.
In the Ashanti Region, however, regional chairman Bernard Antwi-Boasiako (Chairman Wontumi), has been praised by a group for managing to secure some nominations for the various constituency chairmen who applied.
