The main powers of ASEP include choosing the permanent staff of the wider public sector, ensuring the lawfulness of staff hiring procedures followed by agencies of the wider public sector and identifying cases of illegal hirings, through ASEP’s Councillors-Inspectors who act as investigating officers.
Unveiling ASEP’s annual report, which was submitted earlier to Parliament President Filippos Petsalnikos, Veis stressed that 2010 was probably the most important year in the authority’s history. He stressed that it signaled the implementation of Law No. 3812/2009 that placed all staff hirings under ASEP including supervisor selection.
Veis underlined that ASEP’s role was notably upgraded with the participation of four of its members in the five-member Special Council for Selection of Supervisors (EISEP) chaired by an ASEP vice-president.
