Anew Per­ma­nent Sec­re­tary for Health and Med­i­cal Ser­vices is ex­pected to be ap­pointed later this month. Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­mis­sion chair­man, Vishnu Mo­han could only con­firm that there had been a num­ber of keen ap­pli­cants for the po­si­tion. Mr Mo­han chose not to re­veal whether the suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cant was lo­cal or an ex­pa­tri­ate. “A lot of peo­ple had shown in­ter­est from the many min­istries. “We went through a trans­par­ent se­lec­tion process from which we se­lected the top two or three peo­ple,” Mr Mo­han said. The for­mer Min­istry for Health and Med­i­cal Ser­vices per­ma­nent sec­re­tary was Dr Maciusela Tuicakau. He had re­signed from Gov­ern­ment in July.

Cur­rently, the po­si­tion is be­ing looked af­ter by the Per­ma­nent Sec­re­tary for Women, Chil­dren and Poverty Alle­vi­a­tion, Dr Josefa Koroivueta..
