Guyson mum on resignation
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.
who are appointed by the Governor General, acting on the recommendation of the Prime Minister after consultation with the Leader of the Opposition, by instrument under the Public Seal.
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.
