The National Council will be deliberating in the House this summer session the Civil Service Bill passed by the National Assembly. In the winter session of the Parliament in 2009, the Houses could not come to concensus over the Bill and therefore, the Bill died. The new Bill comes to the National Council after being passed by the other House.
The Good Governance Committee will be leading the works leading up to the debate in the House. The Committee has already initiated early stages of consultation with stakeholders. Although, discussions from the 4th session of Parliament will become a baseline, final shape of the Bill will depend on the stakeholder consultations that the House had decided to incorporate in law-making process in all legislative works and debates in the House.
The Royal Civil Service Commission has posted the Civil Service Bill on it’s website (this link will take you to the document). Feedback and comments would be a welcome contribution.
