The District Chief Executive nominee for Ellembelle, Frank Kwesi Bonzoh has failed to secure two-thirds of the total valid votes cast by both elected and appointed assembly members at Nkroful on Thursday.

The confirmation of Hon. Kwesi Bonzoh was delayed for several hours following pockets of misunderstanding, threats from some government appointees amidst the revocation of four of the government appointees.

After the voting, the President’s nominee and the incumbent District Chief Executive secured twenty-seven (27) “Yes” votes against twenty-two (22) “No” votes while three (3) of the votes were rejected.

Meanwhile the Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah says he is hopeful the nominee would secure a win in the second chance vote since he was not outrightly rejected.
