As the political system again proves that nothing has changed, it is understandable that the public is outraged.
The information that has so far been released from inside sources regarding the appointments that will be made to high-ranking positions at public organizations and state-owned enterprises are extremely disappointing. The overwhelming majority of the candidates are failed politicians, former MPs and party cadres. Of course, this sad list of candidates comes as no surprise given that it was the political system itself that reduced the salaries for such key positions in the public administration and state companies to ridiculous levels. On the other hand, the three parties in the coalition government are provoking public sentiment with these appointments because they serve as proof that clientelism, favoritism and cronyism are still alive and kicking.
It is shocking that even at this late stage in the game, our political leadership could not at least exercise some tact.
