The Assembly Members met today at the Trade Union Congress hall to elect a Presiding Member. They have failed to elect a Presiding Member due to an entrenched position taken by the two contestants and their supporters. The two contestants are Assembly Member for Suame, Nana Kofi Senya and the Adumhene Nana Baffour Agyei Kesse, who is a government appointee.
