Participants at the Wa session of the decentralization review have proposed a majority representation of women into the administration of the local assemblies in Ghana.

A women representative group suggested that, women form a greater percentage in the population census of Ghana, hence,if the decentralization process could be strengthened, there was the need for women to play an active role in the running of the assemblies.

They decried the virtual absence of women in the running of the local assemblies as a cause of problems associated with district assemblies after twenty years of implementation.

According to the statement, since the implementation of the decentralization process some twenty years ago, women who are equally competent have not engaged themselves in the process as a result of non-cooperation and support from their male counter parts.

They argued that, women have performed creditably in the area of administration, management, planning, finance, monitoring and evaluation and could be efficient and effective force in the district assembly system when they are given the needed support.

Again, the statement appealed to women groups to offer themselves for the various positions available in the administration of the district assemblies in Ghana.

The group called for the appointment of women to the district assemblies to be non-partisan but rather on competence since partisan ideas has sought to benefit selected few rather than the entire community.
