FSMIS (March 14, 2014): FSM President Manny Mori has issued a notice of termination of employment to Mr. Nickson Bossy, FSM Election Commissioner in Chuuk State, based on recommendation from Mr. Albert T. Welly, Director of the FSM National Election Office.
Mr. Albert reported that Mr. Bossy has been away from duty, taking "unauthorized absence" from his work since June 24, 2013. He also provided copies of two letters sent by him to Mr. Bossy, starting on August 5, 2013 and a copy of Mr. Bossy's response letter of December 2, 2013.
Mr. Bossy has claimed he is away for medical reasons.
In his communication through regular mail and email, President Mori informed Mr. Bossy,
"Based on my review of this matter and under the authority vested in me under Title 9, Section 302(2)(b) of the FSM Code, I find that there is cause to terminate your employment as the National Election Commissioner for Chuuk... I regret that this action is necessary for the good of the Nation."
Meanwhile, the FSM National Election Office issued earlier this month the timetable of necessary deadlines and reminders in preparation for the March 2015 general election.
