City Council of Bagdati municipality approved the code of ethics and rules of behavior for public officials.
The document was drafted by the chairman of the legal and procedural committee, who is a member of the working group, established in frames of the project. Before the presentation at City Council meeting, the document passed all the procedures, it was posted on the website of the municipality and everyone had the opportunity to familiarize with it. As a result of lobbying from the side of working group members, the document was approved.
On the one hand, the code defines a common standard of ethics and behavior for public officials based on general principles (fairness, responsibility, professionalism, efficiency, objectivity, political neutrality, informing the population about the powers they have in communication with public officials) and, on the other hand, together with protecting the interests of public officials, the decree serves to raise trust towards local government and public service.
