Kazim Hosein: I cannot remove a public officer

The minister of local government and rural development Kazim Hosein says he has no jurisdiction to remove a public officer in any local government corporation.

He was responding to a call from Siparia Corporation Chairman Glen Ramadharsingh to have their corporate secretary transferred.

This follows that corporation’s failure to complete a no confidence motion in the secretary on Wednesday, as PNM members left the chamber before the vote.

Reporter Cindy Raghubar-Teekersingh tells us more.
