Dule: Changes in registration law does not guarantee standards
HURP's head, Vangjel Dule, expressed the conviction of the necessity of the census provided for in September, but has expressed his reservations regarding the achievement of European standards in this process.
"We notice with regret that the recent amendments to the law on census abolished the essential right of self-declaration, it penalized at the same time violated the principle of confidentiality of census data. Consequently, such a record can not be standards, but a hybrid recording where one side wants the government to throw ashes in the eyes of the international community will in fact have a record similar to those developed in the totalitarian system, "Dule said.
Dule said that by law, information campaigns for the population should have begun already.
"Functional commissions should be responsible for keeping the census on top of their heads of regions. We have yet to determine regional councils and elected mayors are not the counties, "said Dule.
