What you need to know:

  • Devolved units already indicated over tribalising employment, dig themselves into even more mess with increased skewed hiring.
  • No public establishment should employ more than one-third of its staff from the same ethnic group.
  • 30 per cent of the vacant posts in the devolved units should be filled by candidates who are not from the dominant ethnic community in the county.
