Cabinet unfreezes senior promotions

THE Council of Ministers on Wednesday authorised the unfreezing of managerial positions in the public and broader public sector, as well as all promotions in the police, the fire brigade, the National Guard and the central prisons.

Unfreezing the positions was deemed necessary to ensure the smooth operation of departments and services, a cabinet statement said.

Recent legislation approved by the House stipulated that all promotions will carry no pay increases. The unfreezing proposal will be brought before the House Finance committee for its written consent.

Promotions in the public sector had been frozen in April 2013 as a cost-cutting measure.
