Cabinet decides to cut number of government jobs by 15 percent


On Monday, the Cabinet held a meeting and decided to reduce the number of governmental positions by 15 percent.
On Sunday, the Parliament released Resolution No.70 calling for cuts to the state budget through a decrease in the number of public administrative organizations and their employees.
The Cabinet decided to downsize positions from 15 ministries, 26 agencies, and the Cabinet Secretariat by 15 percent. The cuts aim to eliminate duplicated administrative functions, and to reduce the stages of management by transferring some agencies to affiliated professional associations and the private sector.

The Cabinet decision states that qualified personnel will not be dismissed or changed.
To maintain the continuity of government operations, an agency will not be allowed to employ deputy chairs if it has less than 100 employees and will be responsible for eliminating duplicated divisions. If an agency consists of over 100 employees, only one vice or deputy chair will be permitted.
Employees from merged or liquidated agencies will be promoted for designated posts only. Agencies will now be comprised of up to 10 units, where departments and divisions will no longer exist. An agency chairperson will not employ an advisor and is allowed access to only a small capacity vehicle for official use, while deputy chairs and unit directors are not being given vehicle privileges.
