Most of the new Presidential nominees for various positions including Ministerial, Ambassadorial and Statutory say that they have still not received their letters of appointments from State House.
As a result, they say that, they cannot go to Parliament to collect their declaration forms to enable them to be interviewed by the Parliamentary Committee on Appointments and Public Service.
According to senior Parliamentary sources, only one Presidential nominee, Alimamy P. Koroma had, up until last evening collected his declaration form from Parliament. He was recently nominated to serve as Sierra Leone’s Ambassador to the Peoples Republic of China.
A Parliamentary source told the Global Times that as soon as the Presidential nominees receive their letters of appointments and fill out the declaration forms, they will be interviewed by the Committee on Appointments and Public Service headed by Hon. Ibrahim Bundu. Members of Parliament are due to proceed on Easter vacation next week.
It is not yet known how many of the new nominees have so far received their letters of appointments, which have to be signed by His Excellency President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma.
