DISY MP Dimitris Dimitriou notes that his proposal reduces the suffering of the candidates.

Written exams will now be used to appoint civil servants in the A9 and A11 scales of the public sector, as is currently the case for the A8 scales, based on legislation passed by the Parliament.

The relevant law proposal was submitted by the Member of Parliament DISY, President of the Committee on Institutions Dimitris Dimitriou and was upvoted by 26 MPs while there was one abstention.

In his presentation, Mr. Dimitriou stated that his proposal comes to rationalize a significant part of recruitment in the public sector, while he noted that there were challenging cases in the past such as the hiring of 40 legal advisors in the Legal Service after 500 oral exams.

He noted that his proposal reduces the inconvenience of candidates having to sit for different exams for different posts, while making serious savings. He also said that the standard qualifications of the candidates were tested in their Universities and these exams will judge the perception, critical thinking and reaction level of the candidates. He also said that the exams will concern the positions of 2026. Referring to objections that exist from various departments, he said that they can be recommended to the Public Service Commission (PSC) to exclude them.

AKEL MP Irini Charalambidou said that the Institutions Committee has seen the issue of examinations over and over and concluded that it is a good system. The issues that have been raised, he added, have been answered and he was in favor of the proposal.

The Member of Parliament of DIKO Pavlos Mylonas expressed doubts as to whether the exams that are now being held for the A8 positions serve their purpose and wondered how they will examine the personality and leadership skills of a candidate, especially in a high position. He expressed doubts as to whether these examinations will deliver justice.

The Parliamentary Representative of DIPA – Cooperation Alekos Tryfonidis agreed with the purposes of the proposed law. However, he pointed out that there are many complaints about the examination system currently in force for the A8 scales, stating that they do not cover the whole range of degrees and should be differentiated.

Finally, Mr. Dimitriou, responding to the concerns, he noted that the Parliament sets policies and the experts will decide how the written exams will be conducted and whether they will be different for lawyers and engineers. He added that in addition to the written one, there is also an oral exam at the EDY where other qualifications can be judged.
