The constitution is very clear on how the chief executive officer of a public enterprise is to be appointed. Three institutions are crucial in effecting the appointment. The President does the appointment in consultation with the Public Service Commission and the Board of Directors of the Public Enterprise.
In order to avoid any doubt the Interpretation Act considers any declaration, proclamation or order that is authorized by law to be made should be published in the Gazette in order to give it legal effect. This legal procedure has not always been adhered to, which is the basis of rumours about appointment. In order to avoid such rumours in social media the law should be respected and all proclamations, declarations or orders should be published in the Gazette as soon as they are made so that the public will be duly informed. In this way all doubts will be cleared and there would be no basis for rumours in social media.
