Public admin reform completes second stage

Parliament yesterday passed the last four bills related to the second phase of a major reform of Slovakia’s state administration. The laws define what property belongs to municipalities and newly created regions, set budget rules and fund-raising powers, and specify the salaries of chairs of regional parliaments. Béla Bugár, head of the ethnic Hungarian SMK party, said he felt the maximum possible had been achieved with public administration reform, and added the conditions the SMK had set for its remaining in government had been met. “Not since 1920 have so many powers been passed down to a level of government close to the citizenry,” he said.
