A NOTE ON THE RE-APPOINTMENT OF THE SERVICE CHIEFS

The Commanders of the Defence Forces and the Commissioner-General of Police are appointed by the President both under the provisions of the Constitution and in terms of Acts of Parliament. The Constitution provides that the appointments are made “by the President after consultation with such person or authority as may be prescribed by or under an Act of Parliament.”  Relevant Acts of Parliament (the Defence Act and Police Act) set out the manner of appointment and persons or bodies to be consulted.
