In his letter of resignation; Mr. Deosaran said he ensured that the constitutionally required appointments of (Acting) Commissioner and (Acting) Deputy Commissioner of Police were properly done last month so as to help ensure stability at the executive level of the Police Service.
Mr. Deosaran who served on the commission for three years, referred to a report that was submitted to the President where he explained the extent to which the current framework prevents the PSC from executing its constitutional mandate with the required efficiency and effectiveness.
He maintained he had done his best to execute his duties as well as to help bring the required reforms to the Commission.
Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley yesterday said he was “not surprised” by Prof Ramesh Deosaran’s resignation as the chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC)
Rowley made the statements at Bali¬sier House, Port of Spain, yesterday before the party’s general council meeting.
On May 16, members of the PNM abstained from voting to approve President Anthony Carmona’s nomination to have Deosaran re-appointed as PSC chairman.
Rowley said he has not read his resignation as yet, but he get the sense that Deosaran resigned out of frustration.
Rowley said the PNM meeting yesterday was not as a result of panic, but rather confidence.
Rowley is expected to chair a news conference at 10 a.m. today to discuss what took place at last night’s meeting.
