Namazov: Human Resource Crisis - Objective Result of Government Policies

In Azerbaijan, there is no shortage of personnel; the problem is of the lack of strategy and personnel policy uncertainty. This opinion was expressed in an interview with Turan by Eldar Namazov - a former aide to President Heydar Aliyev, commenting on the recent statement by the head of the Presidential Administration Ramiz Mehdiyev on staffing crisis at all levels of government.

"In reality, there is no problem with the staff. Azerbaijan for more than 20 years has been an independent state. During this period, thousands of people have received higher education at foreign universities and have gained experience in international organizations and large corporations. Even within the framework of the state program, thousands of young people have been educated in the best universities of the world. Human resource capacity of civil society in Azerbaijan is used by leading international organizations.

IMF, EBRD, OSCE, Council of Europe and other international organizations involve Azerbaijani specialists and experts and use their knowledge and experience," said Namazov.

The problem is in the development strategy of the country and what should be the personnel policy.

There must be a conceptual reform program, the public debate about the future of education and healthcare.

Why not use the power of the existing human resources? In answering this question, Namazov said that this is a problem of public policy. It is unclear by which criteria people are hired or promoted in office.

In this situation, an educated citizen with experience in international organizations does not go to the civil service and prefers to work in business or abroad.

Referring to Mehdiyev’s statements about the growth of illiteracy and religious fanaticism, Namazov said that "these issues have become a world problem."

It's no secret that when people do not see justice in the world, they are looking for it in heaven.

People should have good living conditions and receive decent wages, quality health care and education for their children, and the possibility of family holidays.

Faced with problems, they need to be assured of fair justice. Otherwise, people seek justice in other matters, continued Namazov.

The absence of the rule of law, violations of human rights, democracy and free enterprise has greatly increased social tensions. At times there were protests against official arbitrariness in the regions.

Along with this, there are dangerous processes in Azerbaijan and the world around.

At the same time, it is necessary to reduce the economy's dependence on oil.

To counter these external challenges, every country must achieve national solidarity on the principle of equality of all before the law.

"Personnel should not be selected on a regional, familial or clan principle," said Namazov.

However, the government still has not started a dialogue with civil society on these important issues, he said. -06D-
