Justice Minister unveils public administration reform plan

Justice Minister Tibor Navracsics on Tuesday outlined planned moves towards the reform of public administration and the judiciary.

Dubbed Zoltán Magyary Public Administration Development Program, the plan contains a 33-point action plan.

The plan covers electronic public administration, accountability and anti-corruption measures  and will be approved by September 30.

By the end of the year, the tasks of the states are to be laid out in a register that can be continually updated, a review of budget support foundations is to be wound up, and the administrative burden for businesses is to be reduced further.

From the start of 2012, a career path and remuneration scheme will be introduced for public sector workers.

By the end of June, 2012, a unified national card system will be established.

About 50 government resolutions on rationalizing public administration have been made since 1990, but none have resulted in any action, Navracsics said.
