After three years of hiccups, Competition Authority members have been selected and are ready to assume their positions and begin work.

The authority has not been operational since 2013, and despite initial efforts members have only now been appointed. Due to the lack of a decision-making body, no decisions have been issued or investigations conducted by the authority since 2013.

The authority is one of the youngest of its kind in the region and thus has a significant lack of practice providing guidance on how competition rules should be implemented. Such uncertainties are common for any new legal system.
