She also criticized the prohibition of participants who have different sexual orientations. According to Ninik, it is difficult to prove whether the participants are heterosexual or non-heterosexual.
“What is wrong with participants who are non-heterosexual? must we determine their credibility or integrity according to their sexual orientations?” said Ninik.
The agency has also received reports on alleged discriminations against disabled participants. The quota for people with disabilities is limited.
The agency is closely supervising the CPNS selection process to make sure that there are no discriminations. Some of their activities are supervising related institutions, visiting test venues and gathering complaints. (Translator: Muhammad Gestinev)
