Application of section 105 RTI Act

Relevant considerations

The Information Commissioner has the power to review any decision made by the agency or Minister or decide any matter in relation to the access application that could have been decided by an agency or Minister.  The Information Commissioner or delegate ‘stands in the shoes’ of the agency and reconsiders questions of law and of fact in order to reach the correct or preferable decision under the RTI Act.
