Government says PD nomination of member on anti-corruption commission cannot be considered

The Government said in a statement that the Democratic Party nomination of a member of the Permanent Commission against Corruption cannot be considered because it doesn’t have a legal base according to Malta’s Constitution.

The statement adds that Article 3 (1) of the Permanent Commission against Corruption Act provides that members of the commission should be appointed by the President of Malta, who acts on the advice of the Prime Minister following consultation with the Opposition Leader.

As a norm procedure, the statement said, the Opposition Leader nominates himself a person on the commission, with the Government saying that it is expecting the nomination of the Opposition Leader who has failed to nominate the person.

The Government reiterated that the premise of the Democratic Party statement that the government rejected the party’s nomination is mistaken.
