Termination of tenure of office

4.—(1) A member may resign office at any time during the period for which he or she was appointed by giving notice in writing to the Assembly.

(2) A co-opted member may resign office at any time during the period for which he or she was appointed by giving notice in writing to the Centre.

(3) The date on which a resignation by notice pursuant to paragraphs (1) or (2) will take effect will be—

(a)where a date is specified in the notice as being that on which the resignation is to take effect, that date; and

(b)in any other case, the date on which the notice is received by the Assembly or the Centre.

(4) In the case of a member who is the chair or deputy chair, the resignation referred to in paragraph (1) must state whether or not it is given in respect of the member’s appointment as chair or deputy chair only and the Assembly may permit that person to continue as a member for the unexpired period of the original term of appointment as chair or deputy chair.

(5) If the Assembly is of the opinion that a person whom it has appointed as the chair, deputy chair or other member of the Centre is unfit or otherwise unable to carry out the functions of that office, the Assembly may forthwith terminate that person’s tenure of office by giving him or her notice in writing to that effect.

(6) If the Assembly is satisfied that a member has been absent from 3 consecutive meetings of the Centre, the Assembly may forthwith terminate that member’s tenure of office unless it is satisfied that—

(a)the absence was due to reasonable cause; and

(b)the member will be able to attend meeting of the Centre within such period as the Assembly considers reasonable.

(7) Where a person has been appointed by the Assembly to be a member of the Centre—

(a)if it comes to the notice of the Assembly that the person has become disqualified for appointment under regulation 5, it must forthwith notify that person of such disqualification by giving him or her notice in writing to that effect; or

(b)if it comes to the notice of the Assembly that at the time of appointment a person was so disqualified, it must declare that the person was not duly appointed and notify him or her in writing to that effect,

and upon receipt of any such notification, that person’s tenure of office, if any, will be terminated and he or she will cease to be a member.

(8) Paragraphs (5) to (7) apply to co-opted members as if each reference to a member were a reference to a co-opted member and each reference to the Assembly were a reference to the Centre.
