The Meghalaya government has appointed Paul Reader Marwein, a former PWD secretary, as the chairperson of the State’s public service commission.

Marwein replaces GC Momin, who retired from service. “The Cabinet has recently approved the appointment of Marwein as the chairperson of the Meghalaya Public Service Commission,” said an official on Friday.

In a notification issued on Thursday, personnel commissioner and secretary Ripnar Lyngdoh said Marwein’s appointment was approved by governor Satya Pal Malik.

Marwein, who was holding charge as the chief engineer of the PWD, was due to retire early next year but he took voluntary retirement, the official said.
