As the Chairman of the National League of Mayors’ Association declared to OMEGA Agency, Vasily Balan, who is one of the leaders of «Our Moldova» Alliance parliamentary faction, local authorities should be strictly guided in their activity by the provisions of the European Charter of Local Self-Government.

«I consider that we should carry out the provisions set forth in the European Charter of Local Self-Government. We speak about local public administration. Local public administration should solve its problems irrespective of the central management, observing the Constitution and the current legislation», declared Balan, making comments on the governmental decision, taken on 16 February of this year, where the Executive obliges the heads of local public authorities to cut down the personnel.

In this regard, Balan noticed that he did not get acquainted with the given decision, insisting thus on the observance of the provisions of the European document. «I stand for the exact observance of the European Charter», underlined Balan.

On 16 February of this year, Filat’s Government adopted the decision limiting the competence of local communities as regards the determination of the personnel in the mayors’ offices. Thus the Law on local authorities provides for the self-government of the local authorities and also specifies that the list of the staff of the mayor’s office and the structures subordinated to it shall be confirmed by local councils exclusively. The Constitution of Moldova legalises the principle of local autonomy within the local public management, which extends, in particular, upon the organisation and functioning of the local public authorities.
