The Minority Caucus in Parliament at a news conference has called on the Acting Auditor-General to submit to Parliament the Audited Accounts of Government for the 2019 Financial Year in line with, Article 187 Clause 5 of The 1992 Constitution and the Audit Service Act, 2000 (Act 584).

“As a matter of urgency, submit to Parliament and subsequently publish the reports for the purposes of accountability and transparency” as provided for in the Constitution, The Minority Leader said.

He said, “It ought to be noted that the Auditor-General is enjoined to draw the attention of Parliament to instances where public monies are not properly accounted for or where there is deficiency through fraud, default or mistake by any person and that resources are used with due regard to economy, efficiency and effectiveness”.

According to him The Minority Caucus is particularly concerned that these delays may be deliberate for the primary purpose of avoiding further embarrassment to the Government,

They hoped that the delays are not intended to cover up malfeasance on the part of the Government because this year is an election year.

“We further call on the President of the Republic to direct the Acting Auditor-General to urgently submit the said Reports to Parliament for consideration.”  the Minority leader said.
