The decentralization of the public administration
or is it the centralization of PSD interests?
URR is demanding from the government to abandon the project of
denominating 8 governors and to open a wide political debate on the public
administration reform, starting with the long term interests of national
and local development and not considering the conjectural interests of
Reform does not equal a plus of structures and extra - bureaucracy but
lesser structures, more efficient structures and closer to the citizen
The government project of creating 8 developing districts, whose implementation
by the end of the year was announced by the PSD leaders during the recent
Cluj reunion, hardly covers the taking care of their own interests. The
8 governors who are to be denominated by the PSD to administer the European
Founds meant for local development will be exercising a discretionary
control over them. Considering the fact that these resources are already
being heavily infected by corruption the Union for the Reconstruction of Romania
- URR thinks that reinforcing public control and improving the grade of
transparency in the administration are more than necessary, more than
setting up a governmental control aver them.
URR thinks that the division into regions should implicate a real administrative
autonomy, with regional structures chosen by a direct vote. The division
into regions should follow the regional development interests.
The PSD project of dividing the country in 8 regions, regions which will
represent a supplemental level of today's districts, make too big regions,
with no sufficient cohesion and, ultimately, with no object of activity.
URR is proposing the division of the country in 12 regions which will
replace the today's districts and which will take into consideration the
economical, the geographical, the cultural and the development characteristics
of each zone and which will be allowing a better utilization of not only
the European Union financial resources but as well as ones of the tax
Here it is, the proposal for the regional reorganization of the country:
