From Sebastian R. Freiku, Kumasi
 
PARTY EXECUTIVES in five constituencies in Ashanti have cautioned the government not to make the Mistake of changing government appointees in an attempt   to have its way to impose District Chief Executives on them.

 
The Chronicle has gathered that National Democratic Congress (NDC) executives in the Bosomtwe, Offinso North, Bekwai, Amansie West and Atwima Nwabiagya districts have registered their protest against the intended imposition of DCE's on the districts.

 
The party leadership in the constituencies also say they are aware of plans by the government to replace government appointees in other to have its way and dared the government not to make any attempt in that direction as it did in other districts.

 
Sources close to the Bekwai constituency of the NDC say the government dare not change government appointees because the President's nominee must be confirmed at all cost.

The executives said the situation where government appointees are replaced at the eleventh hour to champion the bid of the government by imposing a particular person on the district is unacceptable and must be stopped before it creates problems for the party.

 
They have, therefore, appealed to the Regional Minister to be firm regarding the appointment of people to head the districts in the region. The executives believe that money is exchanging  hands in the appointment of  DCE's and that regional party executives in collaboration with  national executives and other party executives  are influencing the  choice of DCEs for the districts.

 
Our source indicated that regional party executes and top guns of the party recently sent a delegation to the United States to confer with a high ranking member of the party in order to maintain certain DCEs against the will of the constituent and warned that they would resist any attempt to impose a DCE on them.

 
 'We, the executives are waiting to see if the government appointees would be changed in our constituency', a constituency executive in the Bosomtwe district dared the government.
