EXTENDING THE BENEFITS OF PRESIDENTIAL DECREE NUMBERED NINE HUNDRED SEVEN TO HONOR GRADUATES OF SCHOOLYEARS PRIOR TO 1972-73
WHEREAS, under Presidential Decree No. 907 I, granted civil service eligibilities to honor graduates from schools, colleges and universities deemed to be in good standing by the Secretary of Education and Culture to encourage the accession of competent and qualified people into the civil service;
WHEREAS, considering that this rationale would apply equally to other honor graduates, I have deemed it wise and proper to extend the benefits of the Decree to honor graduates of school years previous to school year 1972-73;
