Former ECJ chair criticizes decision to subsume Office of the Political Ombudsman into Electoral Commission of Jamaica

The government has again been criticized for its decision to subsume the Office of the Political Ombudsman into the Electoral Commission of Jamaica.

Professor Errol Miller, who is a former chairman of the ECJ has described the subsuming, as the worst legislation passed, since independence.

He said the decision broke convention and will have adverse effects, if it’s kept in place, during future elections.

He called on government to let good sense prevail and rescind the decision.

Professor Miller was speaking at the recent Jamaica Teachers Association anniversary lecture.
