Despite being the fact that world and its leaders are speaking of promoting merit, there is no merit in developing countries and LDCs including of mine (Pakistan). Governments claim to conduct merit tests and testing system to promote merit but even after these practices corrupt and disqualified people are holding public offices, institutions and administration. Skilled and educated youth is at home, giving tests daily but still unemployed.
Government is not filling vacant seats in public offices and youth is engaged in violence & extremism due to this fraud and malafide approach by governments.
I call it fake/ intercessional/ Interceding merit in which you fulfill all the requirements of merit, conduct tests, interviews etc., but all is eyewash. You hire a person of your choice (already chosen for a vacancy) but you make it appear meritocracy.
Its all nepotism and favoritism with money making testing systems.
Why do they follow all this procedure?
The reason is to show people that they are working on international standards. They are promoting merit for creating a sustainable future (envisioned 2030) and its sustainable development goals.
A public rising on social media is also a reason due to which they need to fool a common man.
Until and unless you are unable to control corruption in public institutions and administration you cannot create a society based on merit, true progress and prosperity.
I impeach the governments for promoting extremism and in-sustainability in the society because they ignore the needs of youth and cause to indulge them in violent activities.
A student who passes out with distinction and position from university does not need any test to get hired in public institutions. Governments should be responsible for his job and scholarships to continue his education or join a workplace.
Example & Case of Pakistan: ( A country having one of the highest number of youth in the world)
There are hundreds and thousands of vacancies which are vacant at any time in public institutions due to not hiring and malafide approach of governments.
Hiring of non professionals in professional institutions (on executive seats) is another case.
The case of MD OGDCL (Oil & Gas Development Company) Pakistan is a perfect example. Former PM Gilani was accused of giving verbal orders for the appointment of
Khawaja, his friend and a beneficiary of the National Reconciliation
Ordinance, to the lucrative post of MD OGDCL. Khawaja allegedly has only
completed his matriculation and did not had the qualifications to be
appointed as MD. He was hired on the executive seat to lead the organization of Oil and Gas professionals.

While there are many testing agencies other than that mentioned here.
FPSC (Federal Public Service Commission), PPSC (Punjab Public Service Commission), KPSC (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Public Service Commission), BPSC (Balochistan Public Service Commission), SPSC (Sindh Public Service Commission), Azad Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission of Pakistan (AJKPSC),

The right to information and a system should be developed in which results of tests and details should appear online and students will have the right to challenge or claim them. The selection on merit should be explicitly appearing online with step by step procedure.
Hiring in bureaucracy of federal and provinces should be under central hiring government agency like Federal Public Service Commission. Educational system of whole country should be federally administrative and same syllabus for technical education. Every institution will be responsible to provide online details and information.
Many students couldn’t get appropriate
job or continue higher education due to lack of communication skills and
English language. Governments should provide free facilities and training for
communication skills and English language for all students in educational
institutions to get the equal opportunities and growth.
Government should fill all vacant positions in public institutions to fill the gap.
