The regulations for the selection and appointment of public boards were passed in Parliament last evening.

The regulations are aimed at bringing transparency to the public body board appointment process and will impact some 146 of the country’s public bodies.

In recent times, there have been repeated calls for the Public Bodies Management and Accountability Nomination, Selection and Appointment to Boards Regulations to be passed.

This followed concerns about the operations at some State Agencies and a number of scandals involving several entities.
