North Macedonia needs more government transparency and a de-politicised police force

In its report on corruption prevention in respect of top executive functions and law enforcement agencies in North Macedonia, Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) calls on the Government to increase transparency of its work and to de-politicise the country’s police force (see also the Macedonian version of the report).

Expressing particular concern at the lack of transparency in respect of government activities, GRECO calls for more regulation and transparency relating to persons carrying out top executive functions, including advisors and external associates hired at the discretion of the central government.

The Council of Europe’s anti-corruption group urges the Government to allow public access to information concerning names and functions of those attending its sessions and to ensure transparency concerning government officials’ contacts with lobbyists and third parties seeking to influence public decision-making. It also suggests complementing the regime for reporting situations of conflicts of interests with practical guidance and training.
