Lawmakers studied legislation related to state oversight Tuesday at parliamentary committee meetings, with a focus on strengthening the Central Inspection Bureau and accounting for hiring in the bloated public sector.Hankash said the committee was also looking to create a system with the CIB whereby citizens could rate the performance of public sector employees with whom they come into contact.The Public Health, Labor and Social Affairs Committee meanwhile heard National Social Security Fund director Mohammad Karaki to get a better idea of the work of the NSSF, particularly regarding its work on health care, committee chair MP Assem Araji told The Daily Star.Firstly, delays in hiring new employees had left the agency with only 49 percent of the staff it needs to function properly just 1,053 employees out of the 2,157 needed, Karaki said.Secondly, Karaki said that by the end of 2017, the Lebanese government owed the NSSF LL2,735 billion, which meant that the NSSF had to go into debt to continue its services.
