ZAGREB, June 20, 2020 – Public Administration Minister and HDZ official Ivan Malenica said on Saturday that after it won the elections, the party would reduce the number of ministries, halve the number of local officials and do its best to make public administration efficient.
“We will digitise local government and connect it with central government registers and numerous services, applications and platforms,” Malenica told a news conference.
Digital signature to be introduced for entire country, public administration
He added that the HDZ would introduce the digital signature for the entire state and public administration by the end of its term. “An efficient state, a resilient state and a digital state is something we will insist on in the next term.”
Malenica said the system of local government would be divided into several categories, with each local government unit having a defined scope of duties and activities to be conducted based on the principle of self-sustainability and self-sufficiency.
“We want to oblige local government units to cooperate,” he said, adding that digitisation increased the efficiency of the private and public sectors, education and society in general.
