Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) has urged the government to appoint new chairmen to the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC), the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and the Information Commission following the due legal process.
As the tenures of the chiefs of the three commissions are going to expire, TIB also called upon the government to appoint honest, efficient, neutral and experienced persons as heads of the constitutional bodies.
In a statement on Thursday, TIB executive director Dr Iftekharuzzaman said it is the government’s responsibility to appoint honest, efficient, neutral and experienced persons to the commissions to establish good governance, ensure human rights and enact the Right to Information Act fully, aiming to implement the National Integrity Strategy.
“We hope the government will appoint new chairmen and members of the three commissions rising above political consideration to fulfill its commitment to establish good governance in the country,” he added, according to UNB. - Idrak
