Ruling 2282

An agent cannot appoint someone else to be his agent to perform the task that was delegated to him to perform. If the principal authorises him to appoint an agent, he must act in the manner that he was instructed. Therefore, if the principal states, ‘Appoint an agent for me’, he must appoint an agent who will act on behalf of the principal and cannot appoint someone who will act on behalf of himself.
