SI Opposition questions method of appointing Permanent Secretaries
He says originally the government had called for people to apply for the posts and later trimming down the number to a short list for interviews.
Mr Fono however says government has changed its mind and cancelled the applications and to hand pick those who will fill the PSs posts.
He questions the practice as it can lead to nepotism and appointment of people who may not be the right persons for the Permanent Secretaries' posts.
Meanwhile, the National Secretary of the Solomon Islands Council of Trade Unions, Tony Kagovai has expressed similar concern about the method government is appointing Permanent Secretaries.
Mr Kagovai says the government must demonstrate good governance, transparency and accountability in the running of the country.
