The National Assembly Wednesday night unanimously approved the five persons who would be serving on the Public Procurement Commission (PPC)
Those approved by the bipartisan Public Accounts Committee as “”suitable candidates” to sit on the PPC are Attorney-at-Law Pauline Chase, Economist Joel Bhagwandin, Rajnarain Singh, Berkeley Wickham and Diana Rajcumar. The nominees secured at least two-thirds support from members of the National Assembly in keeping with Guyana’s Constitution.
Mr. Wickham and Ms Rajcumar have been nominated by the opposition A Partnership for National Unity+Alliance For Change.
PAC Chairman, Jermaine Figueira thanked the inaugural PPC- Carol Corbin, Dr Nankishore Gopaul, Sukrishnalall Pasha, Ivor English and Emily Dodson- and hoped that they would be “given their rightly deserved dues” for their work in setting up the PPC.
