ZELS awaits for DUI's arguments

The mayors of the opposition DUI are due to present their arguments on their intention to drop out of the Association of Local Government Units (ZELS).

This issue has been put on the agenda of the two-day session of the ZELS Steering Committee, due to kick off today in Strumica.

On Wednesday, ZELS president Andrej Petrov described the announced move of DUI's mayors as "politically motivated".

"We will listen to their arguments and see if there are any real problems", Petrov said.

The highlights of the ZELS session will include also the new bill on equitable regional development, handling of non-licensed buildings and education decentralization.

Macedonian President Branko Crvenkovski is scheduled to meet with the members of the Steering Committee on Thursday at noon to discuss the process of decentralization of the local government.
