Address of the H.E. Trajko Veljanoski at the Conference of Speakers of EU Member States and Candidate Countries “Bringing citizens closer to the European Union “
The transparency and the openness of the parliaments are important instruments in practicing democracy. The Parliaments themselves should take care of seizing the possibilities at disposal to be open to the public and the citizens. In particular, I can underline that the activities of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia are completely transparent, in the direction that, every plenary session, every committee meeting, public and scrutiny debate, as well as parliamentary activities are broadcasted at the Parliamentary TV Channel. In this context, it is extremely important that the parliamentary activities connected with the EU integrative processes attract the attention of the public and the citizens.
