Donetsk, Mar 12 - DAN. The adoption of the law on local self-rule bodies in the Donetsk People’s Republic will considerably speed up the solution of pressing issues at the local level, DPR parliament speaker Vladimir Bidyovka told the Donetsk News Agency on Tuesday.
“Local self-rule is an integral part of any democratic state,” Bidyovka said. “Residents should have the opportunity to participate in problem solution, implement public initiatives and strengthen the protection of the society’s interests.”
Also, self-rule bodies will speed up the solution of pressing issues specific for certain areas, thus making the Republic’s administrative process more effective,” he said.
He said that the time was now ripe for drawing this legislation. The speaker promised transparent work on the new law and public hearings.
At the Donbass Power forum on March 5, activists of the DPR leading socio-political movement “Donetsk Republic” called for drawing and adopting a local self-rule law. The DPR Head supported the initiative.*jk*pp
