Implementation – Removing Civil Service Apathy


1.  The Constitutional amendments made in 1974 that effectively politicized the civil service will be removed.

2.  The Public Service Act notes that the role of the Public Service is to perform “with integrity, honesty and impartiality”.  Public servants are to reflect a public service that is “apolitical, impartial and professional; maintains the highest ethical standards;” and “recruits and promotes persons based on merit.”

3.  The schedule in the Civil Establishment Act (CAP 21) will include, as it was specifically intended, the qualifications for each public service post.

4.  The relevant service commissions will recommend the most suitable people to posts with objectively verified demonstrated competence as the only selection criterion.  The specific qualifications required for each post will be published on-line.
