Truthmeter contacted the Training Center within the Ministry of Information Society and Administration and was told that there isn’t such a center within the Ministry and it won’t be established any time soon. We were also told that there isn’t a separate center that would test the foreign language proficiency or computer skills

 

Promise:  Establishing a Center for Testing Foreign Language Proficiency and Computer Skills.

[DUI’s electoral program for the snap general elections of 2016, date: December 2016]

 

EXPLANATION:

DUI’s electoral program for the last general elections, in the section “Public administration”, contains a promise for “establishing a Center for Testing Foreign Language Proficiency and Computer Skills” for administration employees. This promise of DUI is unfulfilled.

Truthmeter contacted the Training Center within the Ministry of Information Society and Administration and was told that there isn’t such a center within the Ministry and it won’t be established any time soon. We were also told that there isn’t a separate center that would test the foreign language proficiency or computer skills. Instead, only administration’s employees’ professional capacity is evaluated.

We also went through the Ministry’s website, but we weren’t able to find information about some kind of plan for establishing such center in the near future.

Additionally, we searched the Internet and we didn’t find information about plans for “establishing a center for testing the foreign language proficiency and computer skills”.

This promise cannot be found in Government’s “Plan 3-6-9”, the publicly promoted administrative reforms and in Government’s Work Program.

Taking all of the aforementioned into consideration, we deem that DUI’s promise for establishing a Center for Testing Foreign Language Proficiency and Computer Skills is unfulfilled.
