APY EXECUTIVE DISAPPOINTED BUT LOOKING FORWARD TO BUILDING STRONGER GOVERNANCE

“If the Minister was concerned about anything, he could have directed APY. He did not,” said APY chairman, Mr Bernard Singer.

The APY Executive yesterday passed a resolution, which strongly opposes the proposed changes to the APY Land Rights Act allowing the Minister to sack the Executive and appoint an Administrator for any reason he thinks fit.
