It is being argued by some that the Prime Minister should have the possibility to appoint technocrats as members of Cabinet.
As things currently stand, there are several posts servicing government departments which should be filled by technocrats but are instead seeing appointment of persons of trust, that is persons who are in the good books of politicians.
How about ensuring that technocrats are appointed where it matters before dreaming of having technocrats in government?
On a final note, we have had three technocrats appointed to Cabinet recently. The first two were responsible for many a mess! I am referring to Edward Scicluna and Konrad Mizzi. The third one, Clyde Caruana is still works in progress!
