Those impacted work in political offices, as drivers in protocol departments and as Governor Lee's personal assistants.
They were all chosen by political parties. That is to say, the Governor chose them and there was no open recruitment process Source said.
The termination letters for the workers whose contracts were supposed to expire in December 2022, started to arrive in September.
