The administrative reform is aimed at ensuring a new quality of public administration, rather than reducing the number of officials, Justice Minister Oleksandr Lavrynovych has said.
"It does not matter whether [the number of officials] will be reduced by half, 30% or 70%, because the purpose [of administrative reform] is to ensure a new quality of public administration," he said on the Inter TV channel late on Friday.
He noted that effective management should be the result of conducting administrative reform and added that a number of officials would be dismissed, because a great number of "unnecessary functions performed by the authorities" had accumulated in Ukraine in recent years.
Lavrynovych said that after the administrative reform, over 9,000 functions would be cut by at least 40%.
