Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and Opposition Leader Hector John have agreed that acting top cop, Daniel Carbon, should be given the green light to take on the job full time.
The instrument of office was expected to be given to Carbon today.
John and Skerrit met on Thursday to consult on the appointment, according to sources.
It was widely tipped that Carbon would be given the nod for the job.
Carbon’s tenure as acting police chief expires on December 31.
His appointment as acting police chief was mired in controversy after John claimed that he was not consulted by Skerrit, as dictated by the Constitution.
According to the Constitution of Dominica the power to appoint or remove a police chief “shall vest in the President, acting in accordance with the advice of the Prime Minister, given after consultation with the Leader of the Opposition and the Police Service Commission.”
