VOTE NO

This is a very well written article, covering all the basis. You have managed to tease a lot of thought-provoking ideations that requires serious discourse.

I would say we should vote YES to re-orient the minds of politicians that their first responsibility is to the local people and not the national headquarters.

The exiting system is nothing more than ugly indirect rule with the government appointing the chief executive plus 30% of the membership. It is time we step out of the ostrich mentality that political parties have not tried to influence and field local candidates. If we can trust the people to elect their president and MPs, what is there to suggest they cannot make their own selections at the local level? What an insult and brainchild of Kwamena Ahwoi? Let's vote massive YES and be over with on December 17, 2019.
