PM defends action on hand-picking of Permanent Secretaries
In an exclusive interview with SIBC, the Prime Minister says he felt the idea of hand-picking people from a pool of about eighty applicants was crucial for purposes of effective governance.
He says this is very crucial because he wants to make sure the right people are recruited to carry out government functions within the four-year term in office.
Prime Minister Sogavare points out that under his leadership, he wants to see people who can effectively discharge orders of the Legislative Executive.
He says the simple logic about this concept is that government must deliver services it had promised to the people of this country within its term of office.
