Political Leader of the People’s National Movement, Dr Keith Rowley, is voicing concern about issues relating to transparency regarding the tendering process for the Beetham Water Recycling Plant construction project.
Speaking at a news briefing at the Opposition’s Charles Street, Port of Spain, today Dr Rowley explained that several contractors expressed an interest in the tendering process.
However, he noted the majority of contractors pulled out of the process due to the short response time given.
Dr Rowley added it came down to two contractors one of which was informed it was refused the project.
He said there are critical questions on this matter that the government must answer.
There is an appeal for the government to consider getting rid of the step where a firm is selected in the process to hire a Police Commissioner.
The call comes from Police Service Commission Chairman, Professor, Ramesh Deosaran.
Speaking at the opening of the new PSC Office in Tunapuna today, Mr. Deosaran insisted the Commission has the necessary expertise to handle the recruitment process.
Stephen Williams has been acting as Police Commissioner for almost two years.
Professor Deosaran warned for such a substantive position there is need for difficulties in the selection of Police Commissioner to be urgently addressed.
