Meeting report

Once the shortlisting process was finalised, the 20 shortlisted names would given to the State Security Agency for screening and human resources division of Parliament for verifying their qualifications within a period of two weeks. She said young people would be considered and not penalised for not having experience because they had what it takes to be Commissioners. What was considered important was their record of activism.
