“...all of them [Ministers] have submitted the first draft but it takes some time to define precisely what results you want. It is not easy to talk of what exactly you want to achieve in 2017; it could be tangible results or just output,” he explained.
The Monitoring and Evaluation Minister did not reveal which Ministry his outfit would be assessing first. He did, although, point out that the Energy and Financial Ministries assessments would be most important as the functions of both ministries have great impact on the general public.
“Finance and energy are always top on the line because of the relationship to the general welfare of the country. When there are power crisis, generally businesses do not do well so if the minister tells me he will be able to eliminate dumsor by December, then I expect him to do so,” he again stated.
