Skopje

Skopje: the European Association for Local democracy – ALDA organised the “Launching Conference” of the project European Label of Governance Excellence (ELoGE) in North Macedonia on the 18th of November.

With great enthusiasm representatives from Macedonian Local Authorities (LAs), previously invited to take part of the project, gathered in Skopje and online to learn more about the ELoGE label. Thus, benefitting from this initiative, the above-mentioned LAs will be required to act in accordance with the 12 Principles of Good Democratic Governance. Among them:

  • Učešće, zastupanje, pošteno sprovođenje izbora;
  • Brzina reagovanja;
  • Efikasnost i efektivnost;
  • Otvorenost i transparentnost;
  • Vladavina prava

Detaljnije, događaj je otvoren intervencijom Eli Čakara iz Ministarstva lokalne samouprave; zatim Antonele Valmorbide, generalne sekretarke ALDA-e koja je ilustrovala iskustvo ALDA-e na temu dobrog upravljanja i Emir Ćorić , član Upravnog odbora ALDA-e koji je svoj govor posvetio radu ALDA-e na Balkanu.


Predstavnici makedonskih lokalnih vlasti okupili su se u Skoplju i na onlajn kako bi saznali više o etiketi ELoGE


Moreover, Niall Sheerin from Center of Expertise for Local Government Reform presented the important work of the Council of Europe and the different programs for development of local governance.

From a general perspective, the next steps will consist of measuring the assessment through the implementation of the benchmark for the European Label of Governance Excellence (ELoGE). Additionally, this exercise is a good learning toll for the Local Authorities to improve their daily work.

Ipak, ovo nije sve: simbol ELoGE, biće dodeljen lokalnim vlastima koje demonstriraju usklađenost sa principima dobrog upravljanja, mereno u odnosu na nacionalni standard.

O realizaciji ove inicijative, kao i o samoj nagradi, uslediće dalje novosti u budućnosti!
