Nasser highlighted that the establishment of the new commission is a key outcome of the public sector development initiatives and its executive program, which received approval last August, reported Khaberni.

Emphasizing that the upcoming changes go beyond mere name alteration, he emphasized that a comprehensive transformation of tasks, roles, and current responsibilities will take place.

The commission's primary responsibilities will include monitoring and overseeing government departments, while actively supporting institutions and ministries in collaboration with the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship and other relevant ministries.

Notably, the Commission will replace the Ministry of Public Sector Development.

Human resources management to focus on systematic planning
Under the new framework, the focus will shift towards systematic planning for departments and institutions, aiming to enhance the capabilities of public employees. This approach marks a significant departure from the previous human resources management practices.

Nasser reaffirmed that despite the changes, the commission will retain its authority and the president's direct connection to the prime minister. Moreover, the institution's independence will be safeguarded, and it will be vested with necessary powers to carry out its mandate effectively.

Addressing concerns over potential disruptions in appointments, Nasser stressed that a smooth transition is expected, ensuring there will be no chaos in the process.
