THE number of civil servants in Melaka will remain the same, says Chief Minister Adly Zahari.
He said there was no plan to trim the workforce, with the state government maintaining the status quo.
“Presently, the number of civil servants stands at 5,300, apart from the staff employed by four local councils,” he said at a press conference.
Adly said the number was sufficient, considering Melaka was witnessing robust development.
“We need the manpower. From the administrative aspect, we will proceed as normal and new recruitments will depend on vacancy, while termination of service will be determined by the outcome of the key performance indicators,” he said.
In another development, Adly said the State Education Trust Fund (Tapem) has allocated education assistance totalling RM15mil to 27 undergrads pursuing studies at Universiti Al-Azhar in Egypt.
He said Tapem was also setting aside more allocations for local students to pursue studies in various fields, including sports science.
“Tapem will look into the educational needs of all races,” he added.
