47. When the chairman of the Conseil du trésor holds a competition, he must admit the persons who have submitted their applications and meet the conditions of eligibility.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, where the chairman of the Conseil du trésor considers that, in view of the large number of candidates, it would be unreasonable to evaluate all the candidates who meet the conditions of eligibility, he may reduce their number according to the norms determined by the Conseil du trésor by regulation. In no case may the norms have the effect of changing the conditions of eligibility to the competition.
The chairman of the Conseil du trésor shall state when inviting applications what means he intends to use to reduce the number of applications.
