It is understood that in an unprecedented move, Sports Minister has decided on open recruitment for the job of DG MSN. Khairy has spoken to the Chief Secretary to the Government to see if he can advertise for applicants openly. Something rarely done for heads of government agency. “The open recruitment process will ensure only the most qualified will apply and be interviewed,” said a source at KBS. This means even internal candidates will be put through a rigorous interview process. And there may be surprised from outside the system from the private sector. Asked about internal candidates, “Of course Shapawi is a front runner given his years of experience at MSN. But he will have to apply just like anyone else. If he gets the job, it will be because he made the best case during the interview process.”
