Appointments and promotions in the Gaza Strip

Appointments and promotions in the Gaza Strip

The study focuses on the ambiguity in the legal texts referred to by the legal system related to appointments and promotions for senior positions, especially the Basic Law, as amended, and the Palestinian Civil Service Law No. 4 of 1998, as amended by Law No. 4 of 2005, (8) of 2005 and other related laws.

The study also attempts to address the problem of the absence of a transparent and fair system to set the standards and controls for appointment and supervision of senior positions.

5. Regulations on appointments and promotions in senior positions shall be set by the competent Minister.
