WOMEN DEFENDER

The Prime Minister of Malaysia has defended the increasing number of women in the Public Service, saying gender was not as important as the capability of the service to do its job. The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the Public Service existed to implement Government policies and that doing so effectively was the most important thing. “The question of gender is not important,” Mr Najib said. “Of utmost importance is the output and achievement of the Civil Service.” He said he would not be surprised if more women than men started work at the administrative and diplomatic service (PTD) in the near future if the trend towards more women attending university continued. Mr Najib made the comments in response to a statement by the Secretary-General of the Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs), Ahmad Shah Mohd Zin, that the current trend of more women being appointed into senior posts had long-term implications for development and national growth. Mr Najib said it made sense for more women to apply because around 65 per cent of those entering university were women and people who wanted to join the PTD needed to have a degree. Deputy Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the domination of women in the PS should not be cause for dispute as it was based on capability and merit. “Whatever occurs in the establishment, the decision is based on merit,” Mr Muhyiddin said. “If a particular woman is capable and based on merit, then she is eligible to be there. We cannot dispute it.” He said the Government’s policy of allocating only 30 per cent of policy maker posts to women was just a guideline. Minister for Women, Family and Community Development, Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said Cuepacs should not worry about the increasing number of women in the Public Service as it would have a positive impact to the national economy and quality of the PS.
