Below are the segments of the exposition of the Prime Minister-designate of Montenegro for the composition of the Government, which refer to the non-governmental sector.
In addition to the general principles of cooperation, concrete progress is mentioned, especially in the part of the substantial change in the participation of the NGO sector in the decision-making process.
We will actively monitor whether the new Government will practice de facto cooperation with civil society in addition to the declarative one.
We will advocate for …
Cooperation with civil society in the implementation of public benefit projects: guarantee of personal freedom and human rights in accordance with the highest standards.
The hand of the new Government remains outstretched towards the civil sector, whom I call in this ocasion as well to build a better future for the country, together in partnership and complementary. The decisions we will make must be the result of an inclusive consultation process, in which everyone who is interested will be able to express their opinion.
MINISTRY OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION; DIGITAL SOCIETY AND MEDIA
With this organization of the Ministry, we will achieve that all public policies related to issues of transparency, digitalization, activities of the NGO sector and the media, free access to information, promotion of media pluralism are in one department.
Bearing in mind the importance of civil society action, not only declaratively, but through the improvement of the strategic and normative framework, we will also work on improving the environment for the activities of NGOs. This will not only imply the improvement of normative
and institutional preconditions, but also a substantial change in the part of the participation of the NGO sector in the decision-making process. In non-governmental organizations we see partners who contribute to the overall democratic development of our society.
APPROACH AND PRINCIPLES
Transparency of the work of everyone in the state administration, as well as every individual, and especially officials, should prevent corruption and bribery, but also ensure a timely response to all discrepancies. This is a common obligation of all of us, especially the media, trade unions, the NGO sector and literally every individual.
