Following a public call by the Public Service Commission and the evaluation of the applications for the role of Police Commissioner, the Commission unanimously referred a shortlist of two candidates to the Cabinet of Ministers.
The Cabinet of Ministers considered both candidates and decided to nominate Mr Angelo Gafà as the most qualified candidate for the appointment of the Police Commissioner, for a hearing by the Parliamentary Committee for Public Appointments.
This step is being taken after Parliament approved a new method to appoint the Police Commissioner.
For the first time in history, the Police Commissioner will be appointed following a public call and with increased scrutiny, following a hearing by the Parliamentary Committee for Public Appointments. The process is now more open and transparent.
