Extending application deadline without publicising new deadline?

There's been a restructure at work with lots of redundancies.

An internal vacancy was advertised with application deadline 3 days later. I had family commitments and just couldn't complete the application in time so I did not apply. 2 of the other applicants withdrew before interview and now I've heard that management is actively encouraging a colleague to apply for the role. Can they do this without letting everyone know that the deadline had been extended? Had I know I could have an extra week, I think I would have applied to so it feels unfair.

Thanks for advice

Well why not approach management and say that you understand that the application process has reopened and that you are interested in applying? Tbh, given that there is a restructure and redundancies I would have emailed when the vacancy was first advertised and asked for an extension to the deadline.

Yes fair point - I suppose I wasn't sure. I think it's the fallout of the redundancies including losing old friends and what now feels like excessive workload that is making me feel very demoralised and uncertain.
