“It's the government's responsibility to appoint professional experienced, skilled and neutral persons as the new chairman and commissioner to the commission following the due process,” he added.
The TIB chief said if the ACC worked to check corruption staying above any fear, nepotism and political influence, it would be able to fulfill the people's expectations and they would trust the commission.
