Congress asks central governments to prioritise appropriate consultation with local authorities
The Monitoring Committee of the Congress adopted today a report on “Ensuring the respect of the European Charter of Local Self-Government in major crisis situations”.
The report asks central governments to prioritise appropriate consultation with local authorities and the allocation of adequate financial resources, as well as refrain from excessive supervision, and to establish a stronger political dialogue with the Congress. It also encourages the Congress to pursue its monitoring activities remotely and develop other alternative strategies to on-site monitoring during the sanitary crisis. However, these measures are exceptional and must not become a substitute to standard on-site monitoring procedures.
