  1. guarantee tenure of office for Civil Servants;
  2. the Public/Civil Service Commission should apply rules relating to the transfers, promotions and discipline of civil servants;
  3. Civil servants should be conversant and adhere to the General Orders and Code of Conduct which forbid being partisan;
