The State Interest and Governance Authority (SIGA) is developing a framework with other stakeholders to inject transparency and openness in the appointment of chief executive officers (CEOs) and board members of state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

The stakeholders include the Ministry of Finance, the Public Services Commission and development partners.

Under the proposed framework, interested persons will be required to apply for advertised positions, after which those shortlisted will be presented to the President to pick his choices.

The Director-General of SIGA, Mr Stephen Asamoah Boateng, disclosed this during an exclusive interview with the Daily Graphic in Accra last Tuesday.
