Prime Minister chairs meeting of steering committee for audit of recruitment in public sector

The steering committee in charge of conducting a thorough audit of recruitment and integration in the public sector, as well as in state-owned enterprises and public institutions and agencies from January 14, 2011 to July 25, 2021, met on Monday evening at the Government Palace in the Kasbah. The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Ahmed Hachani.

The Prime Minister was briefed on the progress of the review process and the results achieved. He stressed the need to speed up the pace of work and meet the deadlines set for the task, a statement from the Prime Ministry said.

The committee previously held a meeting on October 9, in accordance with the provisions of Decree No. 591 of 2023, dated September 21, 2023.

During a meeting at the Carthage Palace on October 5, President Kais Saied stressed the importance of the recently established committees to carry out a comprehensive audit of the recruitment and integration processes as soon as possible.

The aim is to “cleanse the administration of those recruited
outside the legal framework”, President Saied was quoted as saying, describing the ongoing fight against corruption in the country as an “uncompromising war”.

In addition, the president and prime minister met on October 23 to discuss the preliminary results of an audit of more than 10 years’ worth of recruitments, which showed that a significant proportion of them did not comply with legal standards.
