Chairmen for LG bodies without clear majority to be selected through vote!

In the event there is no clear majority, the election of new chairmen for these institutions would be determined either by an open vote or secret vote, said the Minister of Provincial Councils and Local Government Faiszer Mustapha.

He said this is specified in the Act and noted that the best method would be to select the Chairman for the respective institutions through an open vote.

He emphasized that under no circumstance would the LG election act be amended.
