Jakarta: The Adminstrative and Bureaucratic Reform Ministry has announced the government will hold a civil service recruitment next year.

"There will be 120 thousand civil service jobs. Some of them will be local civil service jobs," said Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Minister Asman Abnur in Central Jakarta on Wednesday morning.

According to the data, Around 400 thousand civil servants have retired in the past four years. As the consequence, thousands of civil servants should be recruited in the next few years.

"If we don't hold this recruitment, we will have a structural imbalance," the PAN politician added.

The government recruited 37 thousand civil servants earlier this year. The positions were competed by 1.2 million applicants at that time.
