HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has ordered the People’s Committee of Hải Dương Province to quickly inspect and clarify the responsibilities of individual or organisation related to the case that there are 44 managers in its Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Department.
The large number of managers in the department - 44 managers and just 2 staff has sparked public reaction after it was reported by the media in late October.
Phúc asked the Hải Dương administration to cut down unnecessary managerial positions. The recruitment and appointment of officials must be in compliance with the government policy of downsizing the number of public officials and staff, he said.
He also tasked the Ministry of Home Affairs to work with the committee to public the responsibility of all the individuals and organisations involved in the case after the inspection finished.
At the government’s regular press conference on November 22, Mai Tiến Dũng, Minister and Chairman of the Government Office, said: “One local department with a total of 46 people but having up to 44 managerial officials is unacceptable.”
Also at the meeting, Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Triệu Văn Cường said the appointment of up to 44 managers in the department violated rules.
The number of managerial positions would be cut down to 27, Cường said. — VNS
