He added: “Those seeking to be members of the Board of Commissioners, to whom the RA will report, are expected to have their applications submitted by Friday, February 23, to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transport and Regulatory Affairs.
“The Board of Commissioners is currently responsible for regulating the energy sector and electronic communications sector, apart from broadcasting.
“The posts have already been advertised as a public request for applications from persons who seek to be considered for the position of Commissioner of the RA.
The spokesman said the primary functions and powers of the RA included “establishing of technical industry standards, regulating tariffs by the providers and establishing and enforcing service quality standards in the energy sector, the electronic communications sector and, in due course, in broadcasting”.
He added that the RA was involved in monitoring and regulating many aspects of the markets and their covered services, and was a watchdog on market behaviour.
“According to the Regulatory Act of 2011, section 19(1), the Commissioners are responsible for the actions of the Authority and the general administration of its affairs and business.
“Applicants seeking particulars for candidacy will find them on the webpage of the Ministry of Transport and Regulatory Affairs on the Government portal.”
