Regulatory Authority commissioner steps down
Telecommunications Regulatory Authority commissioner John Cunningham has stepped down, it was announced on Friday.
John Cunnihgham — a partner in specialist technology law firm Allens who was appointed earlier this year for a four-year term — said he would quit at the end of the month.
Economic Development Minister Grant Gibbons, who is responsible for telecoms legislation, said: “It is with regret that we accept John's resignation.”
Mr Cunningham, will however, remain a commissioner on the Telecommunications Commission and the Broadcasting Commission.
Dr Gibbons said: “We understand the increased workload of being a Commissioner and how that has impacted John's already heavy workload in his private practice.
“We respect his decision, I would like to send my thanks and recognition for all the work John has put in, not just as a Commissioner, but also in the build-up to the formation of the authority, which was launched in January of this year.
“His contribution and wise counsel will be missed. We wish him all the best.”
