The Secretary for Public Relations in the Freedom Party, Silva Caka, came out today in a communication to the media where she stated that local government is the most important link in the everyday life of citizens. 

Full statement to the media of the Secretary for Public Relations in the Freedom Party, Silva Caka

The Freedom Party, at the roundtable held yesterday on Territorial Reform and the challenges of local government, after the findings of all the experts participating in the roundtable, commits to guarantee through policies and legal initiatives:

1. Increasing the fiscal autonomy of the local government, through the revision of the model of the distribution of national incomes, as well as the incomes from separate taxes and national taxes, giving more administrative powers to local self-government units.

2. Increasing the decision-making capacity of the local government on its own income. Through the legal changes, the local government will provide additional powers to decide on the rate and form of administration of its own revenues.

3. Increasing the financial capacity of local governments, by increasing the income they receive in the form of unconditional transfer from 1% of GDP, to increase the minimum to over 2% of GDP, to pay more attention to the quality improvement of the education service and health service and social services.

4. Creation of a special investment fund for the local government, which will finance important infrastructure and strategic regional development projects, which impact more than one municipality, for the development of rural infrastructure and support for economic development

5. Review and improvement of the current system of fiscal equalization, to ensure a fairer and more efficient distribution of financial resources, between local self-government units.

6. Improvement of the cadastre and administration of property taxes. This would help in more accurate identification of assets and increase revenue from wealth taxes.

7. Drafting and approval of minimum standards of local services that ensure a basic level of quality throughout the country, relying on international best practices.
The Freedom Party will propose a revision of the legislation with the aim of:

1. The establishment by law of local referendums as a solution for all issues that affect the autonomy of local government and improve the standard of living of citizens.

The local government's motto should be in accordance with Article No. 5 of the European Charter of Local Self-Government of the Council of Europe: "Citizens are the ones who decide on the administration of local self-government units".

2. Revision of legislation to strengthen local autonomy, giving them more power to decide on their fiscal policies and to manage revenues and expenditures more efficiently. This would help reduce dependence on central government and promote more responsible financial management at the local level.

3. Proposing a reform that reviews and expands the role and powers of District Councils, making them more relevant in the context of decentralization and regional development to take a proactive role in the design of regional development strategies that include more than one municipality.

For us, local government is the most important link in the everyday life of citizens, and as such it does not deserve to be treated as a rudiment of the central government, but through the strengthening of its autonomy, the quality of life of all Albanians should be improved.
