Gov’t to Continue Allocating Civil Servant Formation for Non-tenured Teachers, PPPK
Date 24 Oktober 2019
Although Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms (PANRB) has opened civil servant recruitment in 2018 and 2019, the number of non-tenured teachers and contract-based government employees (PPPK) who passed the test are still below the allocation.
“Non-tenured teachers have failed to fill the quota of civil servant candidates allocated (for the Ministry of Education and Culture) which was proposed to the Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms (PANRB). It is because they did not pass the selection test or there were no recruitment in several regional governments. In fact, we have allocated 156,000 positions,” the newly-inaugurated Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture, who was the Minister of Education and Culture in President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s first tenure, Muhadjir Effendy told reporters after the first Plenary Cabinet Meeting of Indonesia Onward Cabinet, at the Merdeka Palace, Jakarta, Thursday (24/10).
Thus, Muhadjir affirmed that the Ministry will continue to allocate civil servant candidates formation for non-tenured teachers and PPPK.
Regarding the number of quota allocated for the upcoming years, the Coordinating Minister said that it must be discussed with the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Ministry of PANRB, the Ministry of Finance, and the Ministry of Home Affairs.
“The four ministries must cooperate. And I hope the new Minister of Education and Culture can carry out the policy because it is a long -term program of the Ministry of Education and Culture until 2024, unless there is a better solution and breakthrough,” he said.
He also added that the Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture will coordinate six ministries, among others, the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Ministry of Religious Affairs, the Ministry of PANRB, the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Social Affairs.
