Mayor of Prizren to reopen meetings of the executive body

The Mayor of Prizren Municipality, during his third term, continues the practice of closed meetings with the heads of directorates. Closure of meetings of the executive branch has been one of the most controversial actions, at the same time more detrimental to local democracy undertaken in the second term of the Mayor. Since it came into effect, there has yet to be a clear and acceptable justification of this act.

This practice, which goes against the fundamental principles of transparent governance, is the best evidence that the Municipality of Prizren is failing to promote good governance standards. At meetings of the Mayor with municipal directors, most sensitive decisions are taken on the management of the municipal budget.
