The Director of the Institute of Local Government Studies (ILGS), Dr Esther Ofei-Aboagye said the move showed an orientation by the government that was accommodating of citizens' participation.
She said the intended assessment would also make for a new era where the criteria against which DCEs would be selected, would widen and vary, incorporating organisational, development and managerial skills and other expectations from individuals seeking the position.
Dr Ofei-Aboagye said from the 1992 Constitution and the Local Government Act 462, the sector ministry, the Local Goverment Service and the ILGS, all articulated various broad rules and functions that would be the standard for the assessment or review of the performances of the DCEs.
Particularly for the ILGS, their work in linking citizens and beneficiaries of local government services, and their collaboration with civil society organisations in various districts as well as government agencies like the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC) and the National Commission for Civic Education (CIVISOC), placed them in a good position in contributing to the exercise.
Also, she said, the ILGS' position as a critical partner with various sector ministries, and also it's membership on the Inter Ministerial Coordinating Committee on Decentralisation gave it a panoramic view of local governance and what would go into the assessment.
Dr Ofei-Aboagye was of the view that the ante would be upped in the selection of DCEs subsequently.
