Interior Ministry hand-picking official who will overhaul state administration system


The Interior Ministry is assessing the applications of twenty-one contestants for the post of deputy interior minister responsible for the civil service sector. This “chief-bureaucrat”, as he has been dubbed by the press, would be responsible for the planned overhaul of the country’s state administration system as outlined in the civil service law approved late last year. The ministry has stressed the importance of selecting a highly-qualified and reliable person for the job and decided to scrap the first round of the open competition because none of the applicants appeared suitable. The name of the new deputy for civil service is to be known next week.
