Districts in Ghana are second-level administrative subdivisions of Ghana, below the level of region.

The local government system consists of a Regional Co-ordinating Council, a four-tier Metropolitan and a three-tier Municipal/District Assemblies Structure. The District Assemblies are either Metropolitan (population over 250,000), Municipal (population over 95,000) or District (population 75,000 and over).

ROLE

A Metropolitan/Municipal/District Assembly is:

  • Created as the pivot of administrative and developmental decision-making in the district and the basic unit of government administration.
  • Assigned with deliberative, legislative as well as executive functions.
  • Established as a monolithic structure to which is assigned the responsibility of the totality of government to bring about integration of political, administrative and development support needed to achieve a more equitable allocation of power, wealth, and geographically dispersed development in Ghana.
  • Constituted as the Planning Authority for the District.

SUB-BODIES

These are the Urban/Town/Zonal/Area Councils and the Unit Committees. In the performance of its function the District Assembly works through the Executive Committee. This includes the Social Services Sub-Committee, Works Sub-Committee, Finance Administration and Development Planning Sub-Committee among others.

The Executive Committee is presided over by the District Chief Executive and consists of not more than one-third of the total members of the Assembly excluding the Presiding member.
