Speech by Commissioner Štefan Füle at the Conference of the Regional and Local Authorities of the Eastern Partnership (CORLEAP)
[..]"There is no true democracy without local democracy that allows people to feel that they can decide on the issues of their daily life.
This is the time, to underline the importance of the democratic values on which the Eastern partnership is based.
When we can combine the efforts of governments, parliaments, civil society and regional and local authorities, we are better placed to advance those values."
