Thirty three, out of the 38 assembly members present gave him the nod, representing 86.89 per cent, in an election supervised by the Deputy Eastern Regional Electoral Officer, Mr Eric Mensah Bonsu, at Tease on Friday.
Earlier in an address read on her behalf, the Deputy Eastern Regional Minister, Ms Mavis Ama Frimpong, said the infant district needed a dynamic and hardworking DCE to implement government policies and programmes to enhance the living standards of the people.
She called for unity among the assembly members, Member of Parliament (MP) and the DCE to move the district forward as there could be no effective development without peace and unity.
The MP for Afram Plains South, Mr Joseph Appiah Boateng said Mr Issakar was not a “stranger” in the newly created district as he was a former DCE for Kwahu North.
He therefore urged the assembly members to give him the needed support to solve the numerous challenges facing the district.
Mr Issakar thanked the assembly members, chiefs and the people for the confidence reposed in him.
He gave the assurance to implement the needed projects and programmes to solve the social problems such as the provision of portable water, places of convenience, school infrastructure and the construction and rehabilitation of roads to improve the living standards of the people.
