Ferhat Dinosha says "NO" to Tuzi Municipality
Podgorica, 19 June 2009 (MINA) – “Tuzi is currently not prepared to elevate to the status of Municipality, given it is not an economically viable area,” said Minister for Human and Minority Rights, Ferhat Dinosha.
Dinosha said that establishments should not proceed with the creation of new municipalities at any cost, where there may be lack of resources and no basis for a budget.
Dinosha recalled that Tuzi currently has the status of Urban Municipality, as part of the capital Podgorica, and added that this status is much more favorable for a future transitional phase where they will eventually become independent municipalities.
"Municipal status should go where local governments allow people to live better lives, and better life cannot exist in territories without money (sufficient budget),” said Dinohsa.
