Budget 2012 debate: call for public sector reform, fat pay packets

Budget 2012 debate kicks off with call for public sector reform, fat pay packets

April 10, 2012 (Demerara Waves)

Budget debate 2012 opened on Tuesday with Shadow Finance Minister Carl Greenidge calling for a reformed public sector with increased wages and salaries.

Addressing the House, Greenidge said that it was “unfortunate” that finance minister Dr. Ashni Singh did not provide in his budget presentation what the government intends to do to improve the “morale” and quality of the public sector on which so many of its development thrusts hinge.

“An efficient public service is the bedrock of any administration and what we require in Guyana to stimulate growth is a non-politicised professional public service which this government has gone a long way to destroy,” he said.

According to the former PNC finance minister, public servants wages need to be increased across the board.  Additionally, the sector should be reformed in line with consultants’ recommendations.     [more]

    Greenich should explain to the country what his previous governments did for almost 30+yrs for pay and morale for the Public Service Employees…And why does his pronouncement below was not pertinent for his governments?

    “An efficient public service is the bedrock of any administration and what we require in Guyana to stimulate growth is a non-politicised professional public service which this government has gone a long way to destroy,” he said……why the hypocrisy and barefacedness?
