Egypt Makes Mass Promotions in Courts, Local Civil Service
The Egyptian judiciary has promoted 581 courtroom officials, judges and prosecutors to higher positions, the daily Al Akhbar said on Thursday.
The promotions deliberately increased the number of primary court officials, in order to cope with the court system’s staggering backlog of cases.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Atef Ebaid endorsed a list of transfers and appointments in the local civil service nationwide.
The list, which will be put into effect in early September, includes 121 local leaders, including three women.
“An intensive training course will be held for all the new leaders to qualify for their jobs, as part of President Mubarak’s instructions on the leadership demands for comprehensive training,” Minister of Local Development Mustafa Abdel Qader said, according to the paper. “This is to improve the leaders’ performance and enable them to use modern technology.” - Albawaba.com
