The First Vice-Head of the State Fund of Local Authorities Promotion in Ukraine Olena Ternyshna showed her appreciation for the idea and results of “We Are Local Authorities” competition in course of the General Assembly of Local Authorities Association representatives today.

“For Sergii Malikov, the Head of the Fund, I express our sincere appreciation to all who organized and participated in this extremely important for Ukrainian youth competition. It is a wonderful idea that received decent implementation. Kharkiv deserves its name of the First Capital – it is the source of many ideas that later become state programs” she said.

Olena Tertyshna reminded that suggestions contained in the best works of the competition participants could be lately developed and offered Anna Novak and Mychailo Semkin, fifth-year students of the National University “Yaroslav Mudryi Ukrainian Law Academy”, an opportunity to participate in training at the State Fund of Local Authorities Promotion.

The First Vice-Head of the Fund stressed that involvement of young people into local authorities strengthening is essential as the youth are the most active and sensible to changes and innovations: “We should unite our effort, this is the reason why the suggestion from the Fund on development of common program of the competition expansion in Ukraine exists. Several experimental regions are likely to be chosen to ensure state status for this initiative and include it to the active Local Authorities Development Program.”
