Acting on my behalf, lawyers have written to OFMDFM asking for consideration to be given to non-MLA’s for the post of Justice Minister.
” I believe the primary legislation intended for such an option to be considered by OFMDFM and accordingly it is my contention that failure to consider such an option is acting ultra vires of the enabling legislation.
” Of course it would be beyond ludicrous for OFMDFM to ever seriously consider me for the post of Justice Minister, but they should consider, as per the original legislation, non-elected persons who have sufficient experience and qualifications.
” Such individuals would be much preferable to an MLA placed there for political convenience.
” I am seeking to expose the politically dysfunctional nature of OFMDFM whilst legitimately challenging a fault line within the implementation of the legislative framework.”
