Electoral promises fulfillment degree in the first governing year of municipal mayors


GAP Institute has published on the online platform “Municipal ID” the progress of the realization of electoral promises given by current mayors in the recent local elections, held in October and November 2017.

Over 900 promises that were given in 26 municipalities, during the period January 2018 - December 2018 (the first year of the four year mandate), 165 promises were fulfilled; 94 partially fulfilled; in 345 promises there were initiatives in their fulfillment; whereas in 299 promises there was no progress at all.

The largest number of fulfilled promises were made in the field of infrastructure, education public services and administration. While in the field of economy, health, agriculture and urbanization there was less work done.

GAP Institute monitors the mayor promises only in 26 municipalities, because some of the current mayors have not conducted electoral campaigns. Municipalities like Skenderaj, Mamusha and the 10 populated Serb majority municipalities did not disclose any election program and did not provide concrete promises.

Through the evaluation of electoral promises, GAP Institute aims to hold mayors accountable for the given promises and to maintain the trust of citizens in the electoral process.
