A government-owned vehicle (G-1270) belonging to the Ministry of Education and Training has allegedly been misused over the weekend.
Members of the public have again stressed concerns about ongoing negligence of government -owned vehicles after photos were shared on social media showing G-1270 at the coast somewhere on Efate.
It’s not known if the driver or people using the vehicle are conducting official duty. The misuse of government vehicles is not a new issue.
The Public Service Commission has been clamping down on misuse of G-vehicles. But despite the GPS system put in place, misuse continues to escalate.
Political appointees and those under the Official Salary Act who misuse public vehicles are dealt with by the Prime Minister’s Office while civil servants breaching PSC regulations are dealt with by the PSC.
