The Croatian government has accepted a new criteria that will help to lower the number of state employees.

At the end of April this year, there were 52,656 civil servants employed in the state administration. The largest number, some 45,000, has been working for the Ministries.

Minister of Public Administration Davorin Mlakar said that some 5,890 civil servants in public administration are currently working in managerial positions. That was often the way to ensure that qualified people remained in state administration instead of going to the public sector.

The new criteria should help lower the number of employees. One of the main measures is the "2 for 1" clause, which specifies that an institution can hire only one person for every two employees who are leaving the administration.

From April until the end of August, the number of those working in the public administration has been lowered by 387. Some 736 more officials are also scheduled to retire this year, the portal Monitor writes.
