Justice Emile Short, the 1st Commissioner of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative (CHRAJ), has disclosed he’s not moulded for politics.
The previous Chairman of CHRAJ who was speaking to the media stated that he had a passion for the law, but he had no interest in becoming a politician.
He expressed that I do not think I am moulded for that sort of plan or activity so I would not want to go there.
Justice Emile Short who spoke widely on developing the democratic system of the nation also backed calls for a reconsideration of the executive authorities of the president.
According to previous Commissioner, the current practice that permits the president to engage directors of critical state institutions has contributed to the paralyzing of capable and competent institutions ordered to challenge corrupt practices in the nation.
He further stated that in practice what has occurred over the years is that these appointments are developed for the benefit of party supporters, people who are compassionate to the administration in authority and sometimes without recourse for merit, and sometimes when that happens, they develop inadequate institutions.
He added, some of these engagements must be made either with the approval of parliament 2/3 of the members of parliament or we’ve a committee comprising of a representative of justifiable civil society organizations who can choose people who are very competent, that way you have a better option of getting people who are capable and competent, credible and men and women of integrity.
