Verified 08 November 2022 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)
Yeah. Yeah. No text provides for this, but it is customary to grant officials and contractors leave to take part in the tests of a competition. They have to present the summons.
Each administration sets its own rules in this area. Check with your human resources department to find out the conditions of authorized absence.
