    The Government and the competent Ministry of Local Self-Government accepted the initiative of the NGO Info-center for advancement of the status and functionality of local communities and other instruments to ensure direct participation of citizens.   While almost all municipalities practice and implement some forms and instruments to consult and engage the citizens in creation and implementation of local policies, those have proven to be insufficient.

The promise in the election campaign for “one society for all” falls short with the first appointment of a director in a state institution. A loyal member of the ruling party always comes to the leadership position despite the mandatory competitions.

However, the law is allegedly stuck in a bureaucratic procedure, so even this four-year term, the
