Again without criteria and against Budget and those who work

Centre for Civic education (CCE) since the beginning of the establishment of working groups for preparation of the negotiations with the EU pointed to the selectivity and lack of clearly defined criteria for the financing of the work of these working groups, and one centralized budget for these purposes, as the interested public could regularly monitor the costs.

Namely, we have claimed that it is inappropriate that some members of these groups are paid for their work, some do not, as well as that these payments are different, without essential measures of performance or other objective criteria. In addition, it should be recalled that all the representatives of the NGO sector completely voluntary contribute to the work of the working groups, whereby because of the bad normative solutions they are even denied to go to bilateral meetings, which are held in Brussels. »
