Regulatory bodies reject political interference in the appointment of their boards of directors

Four of the most important regulatory bodies in the country sent a statement clarifying that the selection processes for their executive presidents and members of the board of directors are “among the most rigorous and transparent in the Peruvian public apparatus.”

In this way, Osinergmin, Ositrán, Osiptel and Sunass responded to the recent statements of the Minister of Housing, Hania Pérez de Cuéllar, who “suggested political interference” on the appointment of the head of the latter entity, as part of a Sunday program.

“This is recognized by the OECD, in the document Regulatory policy in Peru: uniting the framework for regulatory quality, as a strength that allows the appointment of experts in the regulatory field, in sectors as complex and specialized as public services. “, highlighted the four organizations

How is the president of a regulatory body chosen?

In accordance with the Framework Law of Regulatory Bodies for Private Investment in Public Services, the executive presidents of the regulatory bodies are elected by public competition, every 5 years, which was regulated by Supreme Decree 097-2021-PCM and amendments.

Those who meet the requirements determined in the Framework Law and have been declared suitable applicants must go through the stages of curricular evaluation, written evaluation and personal interview.

Each stage is eliminatory. At the end, the Selection Commission (MEF, PCM, sector representative), formed as part of the public competition, submits to the PCM president’s office the list of applicants who passed all the previous technical evaluations.

In this sense, the election of the executive presidents of the regulatory bodies is carried out in strict compliance with the previously mentioned regulations.

“For this reason, we categorically reject any statement that suggests political interference and subordinate interests in the election of the president of Sunass and any regulatory body,” the joint statement states.

Finally, the organizations called for “respect for the autonomy and independence of regulators”, as well as to recover the technical, public and transparent debate of those regulations that directly impact the population.
