In making the appointments to the Board, the President shall have regard to the need to —

  • Give sufficient representation to tertiary education institutions;
  • Include persons who by their position, public standing, knowledge and experience would be capable of making a significant contribution to the work of the Commission; and
  • Ensure that full-time employees of tertiary education institutions do not constitute a majority of the members of the Board.
