  1. The Ministers have too much authority under our telecommunications laws and should devolve some of their authority to ECTEL and the NTRCs. Then again the Draft Electronic Communications Bill will maintain the status quo as another ‘Minister-centric’ law and one gets the impression that the legal drafters and technocrats conspire to maintain this status quo even if it creates inefficient telecommunications regulatory processes in the region.
