Policy Dialogue on Reconciling Civil Service with Local and Provincial Government Needs
Aid, Australian | May 2017
The dialogue focused on the emerging issues and opportunities relating to adjusting and reconciling the existing civil service personnel into the new sub-national government structures – local and provincial governments as provided under the 2015 Constitution of Nepal. The first phase of elections for local governments was held on 14 May 2017, with the second phase planned for late-June. These elections create the political structure in which existing civil service personnel are to be posted. Similarly, elections for provincial governments – expected in late-2017 or early-2018 – will also require civil servants to be adjusted from the central government. Both sub-national tiers of government have considerable power – delivering their mandate will depend to a great deal upon the capacity of civil service personnel.
