  • [01] Gov't unveils revised civil servants' code

    Interior and Public Administration Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Thursday unveiled a revised civil servants' code expected to institute several innovations and red-tape-cutting measures for Greece's often bloated state bureaucracy. The Inner Cabinet approved of the revised civil servants' code this past week.

    Changes include, among others:

    -- abolition of an age limit for hirings in the public sector

    -- data processed "source of wealth" statements by high-ranking civil servants

    -- A five-year statute of limitations for civil servants' liability vis-a-vis the state, instead of the two-year period now in force

    -- Additional measures to ensure guaranteed services and rights for citizens and civil servants with disabilities

    -- Transfers will be allowed from ministry to ministry and from one state-run organisation to another

    -- Objective criteria for promotions within the civil service hierarchy, such as education, language skills as well as demonstrated administrative performance

    -- Specific administrative reprimands for inappropriate behavior towards citizens or refusal to carry out one's duties.
