Kosovo: Statement of Commitment for Mayor candidates

Source: The Coalition of NGOs for Child Protection in Kosovo – KOMF

The Coalition of NGOs for Child Protection – KOMF  send a document addressed to mayoral candidates to seek commitment that children’s rights and their protection will be part of the priorities of the governing agenda in case of choice.

The municipalities, based on the Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo, have clear legal obligations to promote rights and ensure the protection of every child within its jurisdiction. The municipalities have full and exclusive competencies, in terms of local interest, while respecting the standards set out in applicable legislation to a) providing public primary health care; b) providing public services to the family and other social services for children, such as care for vulnerable children, c) providing public education in preschool, primary and secondary education, and d) promoting and protecting children’s rights.

It’s time to turn these commitments into concrete results for children!
