ArmInfo.In the conditions of the Armenian reality, it is very difficult to implement personnel appointments, which will not find a negative response among the population, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan stated on July 20 at a meeting with journalists, touching upon high- profile appointments in the government, in particular, in the State Revenue Committee(SRC) of Armenia.
According to Pashinyan, the government appointed the Chairman of the State Revenue Committee, who is authorized to conduct a personnel policy in the department. Nikol Pashinyan is not going to follow the personnel appointments in the tax and customs department, but he is not ready to leave them without attention. "We discussed this issue several times with the head of the SRC, and I expect concrete results, if there are no results, I will have to react," he said. At the same time, as Nikol Pashinyan emphasized, already today the Investigative Committee of the State Revenues Committee reveals such facts of corruption and tax evasion, which a few months ago would be considered far from reality. At the same time, as the prime minister stressed, the personnel policy of the new government does not mean that they will "sweep everything along the way with a long broom".
According to the Prime Minister, in the new government personnel policy can be divided into 3 groups: new employees, the so-called "old" ones and those who worked in the former government and changed the status under new conditions. Everyone, without exception, as Pashinyan pointed out, will have to undergo a period of adaptation. It is also inevitable that some will not pass the "test" period and will themselves leave the new government. "Those who do not fit into the logic of the new government will leave us," Pashinyan said. In this context, as the Prime Minister pointed out, the most important task of the Government of Armenia is the formation of a personnel bank, which will include all specialists from both Armenia and the Diaspora.
It should be noted that the appointments in the new government, in particular, in the Armenian SRC, have become the subject of discussions. Many expressed doubts whether the ongoing personnel policy is justified, saying that people who have popularity as "inveterate corrupt officials'' return to the tax and customs authorities.
