Guyson mum on res­ig­na­tion

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - News -

Gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Demo­cratic Labour Party (DLP), Guyson May­ers, is tight-lipped about re­ports that he has re­signed from the post of chair­man of the Po­lice Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (PSC).

A stir was cre­ated in Au­gust af­ter May­ers’ se­lec­tion to the party’s hi­er­ar­chy as to whether that was a con­flict of in­ter­est.

Some ar­gued that al­though the Po­lice Ser­vice Reg­u­la­tions, 1964 CAP 34 of the Con­sti­tu­tion, which deals with the func­tions, es­tab­lish­ment and com­po­si­tion of the PSC, did not speak to whether the chair­man of that en­tity could con­cur­rently serve as an ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber of a ma­jor po­lit­i­cal party, they did not be­lieve it was eth­i­cal to do so.

On Sun­day night af­ter a branch meet­ing at Princess Mar­garet Sec­ondary School, the Week­end Na­tion ques­tioned May­ers, an at­tor­ney, on his re­ported res­ig­na­tion, but he de­clined to com­ment.

It is un­der­stood that the three-year con­tracts of board mem­bers were re­newed this year.

Ef­forts to reach other mem­bers – Neville Lewis, Keith Whit­taker and Shirley Far­num – were un­suc­cess­ful.
