NGO Statement on the Self-Governance Reform Process Human Rights Center

We, the non-governmental organizations listed below, think that local self-governance by citizens is a supreme value on which the whole system of democratic governance is based.  The right of citizens to be involved in the management and regulation of local community issues is shared by all democratic states.  Highly legitimate local governments have the power to secure efficient, citizen-centered governance and create a favorable environment for local community development.
