Former Commissioner assesses parliamentary procedure as 'controversial' Izvor: N1

Attorney Rodoljub Sabic assessed as “controversial” the decision of a competent parliamentarian body on the election of a commissioner for information of public importance and personal data protection, claiming that this might complicate the whole election process.

Sabic is the former Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and according to him, the candidates for this post were faced with illegal conditions.

“First of all, it is hard to understand a months-long delay with launching the procedure. The procedure to elect a new commissioner in organised countries is finalised before the mandate of outgoing one expires, sometimes even a few months before,” Sabic told Beta news agency.

When it comes to conditions for the new commissioner, Sabic said it was emphasised that late applications will not be taken into account, assessing as “problematic” and “completely unacceptable” condition to deliver a verified statement of the candidate that he/she is not performing a duty or is an employee of a state body or a political party.

“I'm not sure if it is ignorance, stupidity or evil intention behind this condition but this, without any doubt, illegal condition reminds of a treacherous attempt to eliminate candidates for whom I believe were the most quality on the grounds of professional and independent criteria. Those from the commissioner's service, they and others from the state service cannot give such statement of course, because they are civil servants,” explained Sabic.
