Wednesday, June 21st 2017


It gives mi great pleasure to attend today this round table with topic: "The Parliament and the civil society organisations." 

As first among equals, i promised to engage for a higher transparency of the Assembly and presence of the citizens in the activities of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia. Together with the deputies, we will strive for an inclusive, transparent and accountable legislature, because the parliamentary information belongs to all the citizens. The New Strategic Plan will also ensure practical implementation of this commitment of ours. We will work towards the direct informing of the citizens regarding the role of the legislative power in the system of state regulation, through support of the educative activities for the young population, but also for the social-economic vulnerable groups. The concept of open day in the Assembly every last Friday is only one part of this vision. We will be working on the program content of the Assembly channel, and also upgrade of the electronic platform in order for it to become proactive.
