He failed to meet two-thirds of the required votes for the position.
The occasion was also characterized by the revocation of eleven government appointees which were later replaced by eleven others.
The results from the first election further gave him the opportunity to be renominated by the President for a second confirmation exercise.
He later admitted and apologized to the Assembly members for numerous mistakes and things that went wrong under his first term.
He pledged to work harmoniously and in unity with all members of the assembly for more developmental works for the district.
“I promise to work hand-in-hand with everyone and my doors are ever open for any good ideas for better Anlo land” he stated.
Mr Richard Kwame Safe, a member of Parliament for the Anloga constituency earlier advised the assembly members to do the needful by voting massively for the nominee since he is ever ready to work with him to develop the area.
Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, the Volta regional minister who was present at the occasion thanked the assembly members for having courage in the DCE and re-electing him to continue his works.
He expressed worry about how they rejected Mr Yormewu at the first voting and called for unity among the members for smoother and better development.
