European experts to participate at drafting bills regarding the consolidation of the local autonomy
At the beginning of May, two experts of the Council of Europe (CE) will start their activity at the special committee for the creation of draft bills on consolidation of local autonomy. According to the press service of the Parliament, the expert of CE will work together with the members of the special committee, fact that will exclude the necessity to submit for expertise the amendments elaborated for CE. In this period the committee will identify the concept of the local public authorities function and will determine the clear separation of competences between the central and local authorities, and the case of the local authorities between the local authorities of first and second level in order to make possible the examination of the future budgetary relationships.
