“Our civil service had been facing many several challenges, from infrastructure to equipment and the promotion system, as the President of CSC mentioned today. I hope we can soon work better together, to get a good plan for our civil service”, said the Head of Government, in his message to the incumbents.
Taking this occasion, the Head of Government also thanked the two departed commissioners, Maria Domingas Alves and Jacinta Paula Bernardo, for their dedication to the Civil Service Commission, to which they gave their contribution in serving the country. As for Commissioners José Telo Soares and António Freitas, the Prime Minister expects the National Parliament to take some decisions since these two commissioners were chosen by the Members of Parliament.
Finally, the Chief Executive also thanked the President of CSC, Dr. Faustino Cardoso, for agreeing to be reappointed to his post for another five years.
The Civil Service Commission is under the direct authority of the Prime Minister and is responsible to deal with matters related to civil service, in accordance with Law no. 7/2009 of July 15th. END
