The minister of administration Arsen Bauk confirmed media speculation that 10 000 employees in state services will lose their jobs during next 12 months. He added, however, that around 250 000 people of state and public service received their salaries from the state budget and that those workers participated in total number of 3 to 4 percent.
- This is one way of savings, but it is not a matter of dismissals but t possible retirements - said Bauk. He claims that around 5000 employees of state institutions have requirements for full or early retirement. He added, however, that his ministry didn't participate the discussion on handling those workers, but he presumes that the whole process will be handled as a part of measures for reducing the state and public service.
