A-G raises concern over incorrect information

SOME of the information given to Government to help them make various policy decisions has been incorrect, says Education Minister and Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

He said the collection of fundamental data by government ministries was an issue and talks on how this issue could be addressed were also being held.

"What we have seen is that for example some of the information that has been given to us to make various policy decisions, when we actually look behind it, they are not correct information," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said Government was committed to ensuring that all appointments made were based on merit.

"The Civil Service Reform Management Unit has been trying to ascertain exactly how many teachers are there, exactly how many people are getting paid, exactly how many vacancies are there, exactly how many will be filled.

"And this can only come from the heads of the primary division, the secondary division to give us the correct information so we will have to take some decisive steps and again it requires a c-change (culture change)," he said.
