DILI, 14 September 2023 (TATOLI)- Timor-Leste’s Council of Ministers, has proposed new candidates for Commissioners for the Commission of Anti-Corruption (CAC) and the new leader for the Public Instituto of Petroleum Mineral and Gas.

Draft Resolution introduced by Prime, Minister Kay Rala has given the competent for the National Parliament to decide the leaders for both institutions.

“In accordance with the current law, the names proposed by the government will be analyzed and selected by the National Parliament,” said in a statement.

The appointment of a new CAC commissioner would require an absolute majority of the people’s representatives, representing at least three-quarters of the people’s representatives currently in office.

Sergio Hornai said that the nomination of the CAC Commissioner not only represents an opportunity but also a responsibility and challenge to contribute to the consolidation of the country.

“Many people can lead this commission. However, I acknowledge that the Government has proposed my name to lead the CAC. This shows that my works are recognized and competent, if I am appointed to this position we will work together to contribute to the consolidation of the country’s democracy, reject corruption, and work hard to gain the public’s trust through effective investigations.” he said.

CAC was the target of controversy regarding its leadership in a process that took place in the previous legislature. At the time, when names were proposed in the National Parliament for that institution, there was never a quorum to make the appointment definitive.

Regarding the appointment of positions under the MPRM, five directors were proposed. These choices, remember, are not unrelated to the Prime Minister’s intention to provide transparency, remuneration, and accountability to public institutions that Xanana Gusmão considers “critical areas for national development”. The oil and minerals sector is in this case. The names and institutions are as follows:

– Rui Maria Alves Soares, for the position of President of the Board of Directors and, inherently, President of the Executive Committee of TIMOR GAP, E.P.;

– José Manuel Gonçalves, as Chairman of the Board of Directors and, inherently, Chairman of the Executive Committee of Murak Rai Timor, E.P.;

– Gualdino do Carmo da Silva, for the role of President of the Board of Directors of the National Petroleum Authority, I.P. (ANP);

– Rafael Danilson Magno de Araújo, for the role of President of the Board of Directors of the National Minerals Authority, I.P. (ANM);

– Job Brites dos Santos, for the position of President of the Board of Directors of the Institute of Geosciences of Timor-Leste, I.P. (IGTL).

According to the same source, the appointments took into account their sustainability recognition, integrity, academic and professional training, experience in senior positions, technical capacity in managing the specific sectors of oil, gas, and mineral resources, knowledge of policies and strategies related to these sectors, in addition to leadership, collaboration, pedagogy, and team motivation skills.
