400 police officers appear in MoI written exam

400 police officers appear in MoI written exam

Feb 07, 2018 - 20:36

KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Interior Affairs (MoI) Wednesday took a written examination from 400 police officers for 36 posts of chief and deputy police chief positions in capital Kabul, the minister of interior said.

Wais Ahmad Barmak told Pajhwok Afghan News the written open competition test was part of the reforms being introduced in the ministry.

He assured transparency and no political interference in the examination process. “I have myself prepared the questionnaire and participants would be given the posts based on their talent and competence”.

Barmak said the MoI’s upcoming four-year strategic reforms plan would be implemented in police lines across the country.

He added the written exam would not be enough if one lacked experiences and achievements.

The minister warned against cheating in the exam and if he received a complaint of fraud the exam would be cancelled for the sake of transparency.

“Those who succeed in the exam would be given three months to display their talent and proficiency and the failing candidates could apply for provincial posts”, the minister concluded.

The interior minister also talked about the recent terrorist attacks, saying they happened due to lack of professionals and poor attention of security officials to their duties.
