Civil Servants Warned Against Politics

Apac District Local Government has warned the civil servants in the district against getting involved in the political activities, mind rx http://citybreakguide.ro/wp-content/plugins/thrive-visual-editor/editor/lb_icon.php saying it contravenes the professional code of conduct.

The Chief Administrative officer, http://creativecommons.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/videopress.php Mr Saraphine  Alia said that much as the civil servants are entitled to vote in the fourth coming elections for the candidates of their choice,  they are not permitted by law to openly campaign for them.

“The report reaching my office indicates that some civil servants of Apac district are openly involved in the ongoing political campaign. I do recall I had given guidance and cautioned civil servants against the dangers of getting involved in open political campaigns,” the letter addressed to the staff reads in part.

He said civil servants who will be caught carrying out campaigns will face disciplinary actions.

“Those therefore openly campaigning for the candidates are doing so in their own individuals capacity and should be prepared to face the consequences individually,” Mr Alia said.
