Puerto Rico governor calls for cancellation of Whitefish contract

WASHINGTON, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello has called for an immediate cancellation of the contract with Whitefish Energy Holdings, a Montana company hired to restore critical power infrastructure, his office confirmed on Sunday.

The contract has come under increased criticism after it was revealed that the terms were obtained without a public bid process. Whitefish officials have insisted that they secured the deal legitimately and welcomed an audit of the company’s work. (Reporting by Ginger Gibson; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn)
