The psychological testing for public prosecutors will be relaxed to cut the failure rate, the Executive Council said yesterday.

Taking the psychological test has been a mandatory requirement for candidates who wish to become part of the judicial panel of the courts or the Public Prosecutions Office.

Although the test had proved its significance over years of practice, the spokesperson Tong Chi Kin said a lot of failures had been seen recorded during the training courses or internships as the test gave a “pass” or “fail” result.

Therefore the Administrative Regulation has been amended to expand the rating to five categories of: “extremely applicable”, “very applicable”, “applicable”, “merely applicable”, and “not applicable”.

Mr Tong also said that a more outstanding portfolio or positive psychological test comment would be an advantage in cases when more than one candidate obtained the same overall training result.

Also the Executive Council announced yesterday all locally published works, regardless of the forms, genres, reproduction and the distribution methods, will be classed as statutory collection items by the Macau Central Library.

Printed or electronic books, periodicals, maps, event programs, exhibition catalogues, postcards, postal products, posters, multimedia as well as microfilm information will be all be classed as mandatory collection items.

Mr Tong said publishers or authors were required to submit two original copies of the published works to the library within 30 days after the date of issue.
