The new Operational-Technical Agency (OTA) where the monitoring of communications will be monitored, is going to be managed by a director who Parliament will elect and can dismiss, reads the draft law on the new agency which is due to be put before MPs.

The director, as specified in the law, will be selected through a public advertisement.

The director’s mandate will last for five years, without the right to re-election.

According to article eight of the law, “the function of the director is to be carried out professionally and is incompatible with the performance of another public function or a political party function”.

The director will submit to Parliament an annual report on the work of the OTA for the previous calendar year by the end of March of the current year, and will be obliged, at the request of Parliament, to submit additional reports.
