No-faith motion alleges political bias in public sector recruitments

A no-confidence motion against Home Affairs and Public Administration Minister John Seneviratne was entered in the addendum of the Order Book of Parliament on Friday but no date has been fixed for it to be taken up in the House.

The no-confidence motion says the minister has not implemented a fair and impartial procedure to provide jobs to 40,000 unemployed graduates in the public sector and accuses the government of providing jobs only to those who are connected to ruling party politicians.

It charges that the government is using “political lists” and unfair methods in granting jobs in blatant violation of the public sector recruitment procedure and the fundamental rights provisions of the Constitution. It says the minister has failed to make reasonable submissions to justify the political list-based recruitment process.

The motion signed by 30 UNP and DNA parliamentarians alleges that there is no transparency in the recruitment to the public sector while the independence of the Public Services Commission has been severely undermined.
