Type: Press Statement
The Democratic Alliance in the Northern Cape demands that the Office of the Premier must withdraw adverts that it placed recently in the DFA for three positions of Heads of Departments in the Northern Cape.
The advert placed in DFA on Monday 7 August does not meet the requirements of Public Service Act and the regulations thereto. The regulations provide that the inherent requirements of the job and the core functions must be specified. The advert does not specify qualifications, competencies and experience as enunciated in regulation 65 (3).
Omitting these crucial details is purely aimed at facilitating the appointment of people who do not meet the requirements and more specifically to act in accordance with deals struck before the ANC’s provincial conference.
The Democratic Alliance will scrutinise and challenge any appointment made in contravention of the Public Service Act.
The cost of placing the incorrect adverts must be recouped personally from the responsible officials as irregular, fruitless and wasteful expenditure was incurred.
