It is widely known that the politicisation of the civil service has been a major reason for its underperformance, especially since the democratic transition of 1990. There are trade unions affiliated to all major parties in the bureaucracy, and this has led to factionalism and service delivery.

The bill proposes abolishing unions affiliated to parties and creating in its place a single union, which is supposed to be apolitical in nature, to represent all civil servants. Power to the party
