Integrity Commission publishes notices of contracts and interests
Published on March 6, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

The Integrity Commission has a number of legislative responsibilities concerning the by-election which takes place on 22 March 2013 for the Cheshire Hall and Richmond Hill, Electoral District 7. This includes publication of notices of contracts and interests with government and making this information readily available to the public of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

In accordance with Section 49(1)(f) of the Constitution, which came into force on 15 October 2012, no person shall be qualified to be an elected member of the House of Assembly if he or she is a party to any contract with the government and has not, on or before the date of nomination, disclosed in a notice to the Integrity Commission the nature of such contract and his or her interest in it.

Candidates, who will be participating in the forthcoming by-election on 22 March 2013, have submitted notices to the Commission. They were required to do so on or before Friday 1st March 2013, being the nomination date for the by-election. Thereafter, the Commission is required under Section 49(3) of the Constitution to publish any notice delivered to it for the purpose of informing the electorate before the date of the election.

The Commission has therefore compiled this information on a register which is now available to the public through this release and accessible on the Commissions page of the government website: www.gov.tc. In addition, the Commission will have the register open for public inspection at its offices situated in Waterloo Plaza, Waterloo Road, Grand Turk.

Eugene Otuonye QC, director of the Integrity Commission stated, “This is a crucial by-election and it is important that the Commission make this information publicly available to the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands. In doing so, the Commission is fulfilling its primary responsibility under the constitution, which is to promote integrity, honesty and good faith in public life in the islands.”
