CAOA chief: Law on government employment to be replaced

The head of the Central Agency for Organization and Administration has revealed government intentions to replace the 1978 law governing public employees dubbed “the civil service law.”
Jihan Abdel Rahman told Al-Masry Al-Youm in an interview that amendments to the old law are scheduled to finish before the end of this year as per directives by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
Abdel Rahman said the government is done with the permanent employment of 350,000 casual workers since January 2011, adding that the rest of the government’s casual manpower will be officially employed by 2015. She noted that law 19\2012 disallows the hiring of temporary workers, and that those being employed currently had been hired before the adoption of that law.
There are currently about seven million employees at the state’s administrative apparatuses, she added.
Abdel Rahman added that the government started its administrative reform program two months ago under the supervision of Planning Minister Ashraf al-Araby.
