Sample text

Section 11 of the draft law provides the legal framework for the independence of the Director General of the proposed Communications Board and provides, in particular, that [n]o one may require that the Director General make decisions which are contrary to the provisions of this Act or other legislation. The Minister of Transport and Communications may propose that the Director General cancel, suspend, or amend a decision, but only if the Minister finds that the proposed decision is contrary to a provision of the proposed law or other legislation; otherwise there is no basis for the decision.
