CSC re­leases re­sults of For­eign Ser­vice Of­fi­cer qual­i­fy­ing test

Sun.Star Pampanga - - SHOW! - (PNA)

Sev­enty-seven (77) ex­am­i­nees passed this year’s Ca­reer Ser­vice Ex­am­i­na­tion for For­eign Ser­vice Of­fi­cer (CSE-FSO).

The Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (CSC) dis­closed that the fig­ure rep­re­sents 16.70% of the to­tal num­ber of ex­am­i­nees that took the CSEFSO on Jan. 27, 2019. The CSE-FSO was con­ducted in 10 re­gions.

Out of 461 ex­am­i­nees, Michael Joseph Os­tique from the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Re­gion (NCR) topped the CSE-FSO with a rat­ing of 85.85.

All top ex­am­i­nees were from NCR where most ex­am­i­nees came from. They are: Jose Mari Valen­zuela and Michael An­ton Estipona (84.88); Marthy Angue, Jopol Alvin Ancheta, and Man­fred Neale Manalo (84.39); and Em­manuel Gar­cia, Dan­ica Denise Man­i­cad, Jef­frey Louis Ila­gan, An­ton San­doval, Carlo Je­jo­mar Pas­cual Sanchez, Kriezel Joy Daria, and Paul Ger­ard Caab (83.90).

The re­sult­ing el­i­gi­bil­ity called the Ca­reer For­eign Ser­vice Of­fi­cer El­i­gi­bil­ity is ap­pro­pri­ate to first and sec­ond level po­si­tions in the gov­ern­ment that do not in­volve prac­tice of pro­fes­sion and are not cov­ered by Bar, board and other laws. As such, it is com­pa­ra­ble to the Ca­reer Ser­vice Pro­fes­sional El­i­gi­bil­ity, the CSC ex­plained.

On top of be­ing con­ferred the Ca­reer For­eign Ser­vice Of­fi­cer El­i­gi­bil­ity, the 77 passers of the CSEFSO shall be able to pro­ceed to the suc­ceed­ing part of the five-part For­eign Ser­vice Of­fi­cer Ex­am­i­na­tion (FSOE) ad­min­is­tered by the Depart­ment of For­eign Af­fairs (DFA).

The CSE-FSO serves as the first part (qual­i­fy­ing test) of the FSOE ad­min­is­tered to re­cruit can­di­dates for the For­eign Ser­vice Of­fi­cer, Class IV po­si­tion. The re­main­ing parts of the FSOE in­clude the Pre­lim­i­nary In­ter­view, Writ­ten Test, Psy­cho­log­i­cal Test, and Oral Test, all ad­min­is­tered by the DFA.

Ex­am­i­nees may gen­er­ate their test re­sult us­ing the On­line Civil Ser­vice Ex­am­i­na­tion Re­sult Gen­er­a­tion Sys­tem (OCSERGS), which can be ac­cessed through the CSC web­site, www.csc.gov.ph by March 24.

Those who passed, the CSC added, may claim their Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of El­i­gi­bil­ity at the CSC Re­gional Of­fice con­cerned by April 10. Passers are ad­vised to ver­ify first the avail­abil­ity of their Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. The com­plete list of passers of the Jan 27, 2019 CSE-FSO may be ac­cessed at the CSC web­site. The Com­mis­sion on Elec­tions (Com­elec) on Fri­day ad­vised the pub­lic that it is no longer hold­ing voter reg­is­tra­tion ac­tiv­i­ties for now.

“Com­elec reg­is­tra­tion ended as early as last year. There is no on­go­ing reg­is­tra­tion of any kind. We don’t have an on­go­ing bio­met­rics reg­is­tra­tion now,” Com­elec spokesper­son James Jimenez said in an in­ter­view.

“So if there are those in your barangay invit­ing you to have your bio­met­rics taken so you can vote on Elec­tion Day, that is not true,” he added.

The last time the Com­elec con­ducted voter reg­is­tra­tion was from July 2 to Septem­ber 29, 2018.

Jimenez ex­plained that only the Elec­tion Day Com­put­er­ized Vot­ers' List (EDCVL) be­ing held by the Board of Elec­tion In­spec­tors (BEI) is the le­git­i­mate list.

He noted that the pub­lic should not be­lieve the list be­ing claimed by some peo­ple or their barangay as the EDCVL is the only true list they should look at.

“But the list from the barangays are not the ba­sis if you can vote or not. The list we are us­ing is the one held by the Board of Elec­tion In­spec­tors (BEI),” Jimenez said.

He added that the use of the “fake” vot­ers list is to pre­vent peo­ple from vot­ing.

“Its pur­pose is ac­tu­ally to de­feat your right to vote by pre­vent­ing you from vot­ing, by telling you that you are not a voter,” the Com­elec of­fi­cial said.
