Mitsotakis warns municipalities that refuse to cooperate over evaluation scheme

The details of municipalities that refuse to submit data for the evaluation of civil servants will be transferred to the Supreme Court prosecutor, Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has said.

The warning, made during an interview on Wednesday, came a day after newly-installed Attica Governor Rena Dourou won a vote calling for the regional authority not to cooperate with the evaluation scheme.

“This evaluation and its quotas are illegal and unconstitutional,” Dourou said, citing court decisions.

Speaking to Mega TV on Wednesday, Mitsotakis lashed out at the SYRIZA-backed governor.

“How can she talk about legality when she refuses to enforce a law passed in Parliament?” Mitsotakis told the station. “Law abidance cannot be a la carte.”

The Attica Regional Council voted in favor of Dourou’s proposal that the authority should not provide its employees’ details to inspectors. This also applies to checks on fixed-term contracts that were made permanent in 2006. The government believes that many of these switches were illegal.
