7. The Minister may, if he or she has reasonable grounds to believe that the public interest requires it in order, among other things, to ensure the mobility of persons, issue directives concerning the objectives and policy directions the Authority must pursue.
Such directives, which must be approved by the Government, come into force on the date they are approved. Once approved, they are binding on the Authority and must be complied with.
The Minister tables the directives in the National Assembly within 15 days after they are approved or, if the Assembly is not sitting, within 15 days after resumption.
