New Central Bank Governor: Duty first before any political party
Responding to Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley’s questioning of his independence as head of the Central Bank Governor Jwala Rambarran says he will do his duty without taking the side of any political party. Speaking to reporters yesterday after a 45-minute meeting with retired governor Ewart Williams and Finance Minister Larry Howai at the Ministry of Finance, Rambarran said: “The Central Bank is an autonomous institution with a very strong, operational independence.” Rambarran confirmed he was given a briefing at the meeting. His first official day in office is today. Asked if he believed he was appointed to the position owing to his political affiliation, he said: “As it is, the Cabinet has to make decision and they made their decision.”
