Yesterday the government confirmed the opposition’s nomination of John Rizzo to the Commission against Corruption.

Before that happened I commented that though the candidate was eminently qualified, his nomination may have been outside the intentions of the law. To be fair I was rather more categorical than that suggesting that my reading of the law, as an amateur, was that John Rizzo was ineligible having been a civil servant in the last 10 years and therefore excluded by the legal requirements.

Well obviously the opposition disagreed, the attorney general disagreed and the government disagreed.

But some doubts still nag. Read this piece on The Shift News by Andrew Borg Cardona who assesses the issue and unlike me he is very much a lawyer.
