The cabinet's media center has denied reports that the government intends to lay off large numbers of civil servants over allegations of expenditure savings.
In a press release on Friday 18/10/2019, the center said it contacted the Central Agency for Organization and Administration, which categorically dismissed these reports as baseless.
The agency asserted that the government is seeking to upgrade the state administrative apparatus, with a view to enhancing the quality of services offered to citizens, without any prejudice to employees' rights.
It noted that training courses have been developed to qualify cadres capable of running the process of institutional change in order to build an efficient and effective management system.
The agency appealed to all mass media outlets and social media users to verify the authenticity of any report they publish to avoid provoking the state employees' anger.
