If you've been paying attention, you will know that you have to be employed by the government to evaluate your Department(s)' leadership. -- You can still have a satisfying (unprecedented even) influence on decision-making without being in the public sector workforce, as a member of a Political Party (DG Activist Opposition Party). --

But let me explain why this rule is a good thing.

There is a public sector within every Department. Employees of a Department's public sector are it's Constituency, and the only citizens who evaluate that Department's Leadership.

As a rule, every Department MUST be able to employ anyone who needs work, or just wants to be in that Constituency. If you want to work one hour per week (or 80 hours), you have access to that work/wage and to that Constituency. Even if your job is to dust furniture or sing (because there is nothing else available), you get paid. Departments MUST create employment when necessary.

You can imagine what effects this will have on the economy, and on citizen participation in decision-making.
