Public sector hiring freeze extended

By a unanimous vote, parliament on Thursday extended a freeze on public sector hiring to the end of 2017.
Earlier, the government had submitted a bill extending the moratorium to the end of 2016, but an amendment tabled by the ruling DISY party added another year.
The move is designed to allow the government to comply with its obligations toward its international lenders.
Under the bailout deal, Cyprus agreed to slash the number of public-sector employees by 4,500 in the 2012 to 2016 period via, among others, a freeze on new hires.
The freeze applies to the central government as well as to semi-governmental organisations.
