Senior public servants sworn in

Employment contracts were signed by two department secretaries, two provincial administrators and a commissioner in Port Moresby today.

The signing took place before Governor General Sir Bob Dadae and Acting Secretary for the Department of Personnel Management, Taies Sansan.

Five senior public servants had their employment contracts executed by Sir Bob Dadae today at the Government house.

Gulf and Morobe provincial administrators, Marc Orisuru Avai and Bart Ipambonj, will be the provincial heads for the next four years.

Secretary for the Department of Works and Implementation, David Wereh, also signed his contract, along with secretary for the Department of Provincial and Local Level Government Affairs, Dickson Guina, who previously acted on the role.
