Delays in establishing Commissions created under the new Montserrat Constitution

 

Governor Adrian Davis

At his fourth press conference for 2012 held on April 18, Governor Adrian Davis says he’s reluctant to establish the Integrity Commission while Premier Meade is yet to name the person he wishes to serve on the Electoral Commission.

The Governor was asked about the delays in establishing some of the Commissions as required since the 2010 new Montserrat Constitution. “I have a difficulty with the integrity commission as it was proposed and I don’t quite know exactly what to do about it… I don’t believe that the current list is proportional or pragmatic…,” he declared.

He explains that the list of people under the current Integrity Commission Act that would have to report their financial dealings every year, “it seems to me disproportionately long, ludicrously long,  that covers far too many people, and goes down to too junior levels.”

Meantime as the Governor waits for directions from the UK government, Premier Meade has promised to address the issue since, the Governor’s predecessor Waterworth and other British officials wanted an even longer list going further down the ladder of public servants.
