CSC warns public sector employees vs joining campaigns

By Minerva BC Newman

Cebu, Philippines (13 April) -- The Civil Service Commission (CSC) in region 7 has warned the public sector employees to refrain from joining electoral campaigns or they risk losing their jobs.

In a CSC advisory issued recently, CSC regional director David Cabanag explained, “probihition from partisan political activities covers permanent appointees, co-terminus employees, casuals and contractual and other government workers whose appointments are approved by the CSC.”

Cabanag said government workers are really prohibited from directly or indirectly engaging in any partisan politics or they risk losing their jobs. The CSC advisory was issued after it received reports that there are some government employees that are already and or may have engaged in political campaigning and other related activities.

He added that among other acts that government employees are prohibited from include; holding political caucuses, conferences, meetings, rallies, parades or other similar assemblies to solicit votes. They are also barred from doing campaign propaganda for or against any candidate.

However, CSC asst. regional director Edith Luzano said, consultants of elected officials and employees whose nature of employment are covered by contracts of services are exempted from the prohibition.

“Employees that are covered with job orders or contract of services are not considered government employees. Those who are working for politicians but are not paid by the government are also exempted,” Luzano added. (PIA-Cebu) [top]
