What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
The existing law on structure and authority of attorney general office does not have sufficient mechanism to ensure transparency and meritocracy in the recruitment of attorneys. Further, this law does not adequately pave the ground for recruitment of female attorneys and also lacks a monitoring mechanism of CSOs on recruitment of attorneys.

What is the commitment?
This commitment is to address the aforesaid challenges via revision of law on structure and authority of attorney general office in partnership with relevant CSOs and experts with an ultimate purpose to ensure transparency in the recruitment of attorneys and pave the ground for CSOs scrutiny over the process.

How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem?
The revision of aforementioned law will provide an opportunity for civil society to monitor attorneys’ recruitment process in the Attorney General Office. Implementation of this commitment contrives the recruitment of professional and competent applicants considering the women participation. Likewise, participation of CSOs in recruitment process ascertains rule of law, public access to justice and elimination of mistrust amid people in justice sectors. CSOs scrutiny will facilitate and streamline recruitment process of professional and competent individuals besides this can be considered a serious combat against administrative corruption in the recruitment process.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
CSOs monitoring from Attorney General Office’s recruitment process will promote transparency, accountability, civic participation and reduce gap between government and public.
