Minister for Education Aseri Radrodro has directed an investigation into the 30-plus appointments that were done on December 23rd, 2022, on the eve of the swearing-in of the new coalition government.
While responding to former Education Minister Premila Kumar, Radrodro has invited her to a face to face discussion.
He has questioned what was the rush for these appointments.
Radrodro has also directed an investigation into allegations that some ministry staff and teachers were allegedly campaigning for Kumar and another FijiFirst candidate.
The Minister says if proven to be correct, these actions and issues raised can be challenged for it would breach the PSC Code of Conduct and may even suggest forms of malpractice that they will be forced to hand over to the respective authorities to investigate further.
