District Empowerment Bid


BY MIRIAM ZARRIGA

MEMBER for Pomio and Minister for Public Service Elias Kapavore says he will be working towards empowering the chief executive officer of the district to do his own staff recruitment.

“The first thing I will be doing in my agenda is to allow for the evolution of human resources to be decided at the district level, so that CEOs are given powers to do their own recruitment.

“They are there on the ground and they can review their own structure and do their own advertisements.

“That’s the first agenda I will be looking at, Mr Kapavore said.

Mr Kapavore said that while he was ready to take up the challenge, he had been expecting the Health portfolio to be given to him seeing he had a background in health administration.

“I was actually expecting health as with my background as the health administrator in the past I would think that we know most of the problems and working together with the health department and do a lot of things,” he said.

But he has accepted the challenge given him by the Prime Minister. “Since the PM saw fit to appoint me in that area I will take up the challenge.”
