So it has value to present and implement in each region a comprehensive, concrete plan works, actions, interventions to meet the needs of citizens and the region. Transparent management and respect for taxpayers' money.
A program that exploits the comparative advantages and overcomes the problems and weaknesses. These should be presented to citizens and YP.ES. will assist in this effort Regions.

In order to move all of them we must directly confront the problem of kyvernisimotitas of Regions and Cities.
The application of proportional, It creates huge problems. Problems that endanger even the elementary function of the Region, much more so, work and action.
You can of course here there are governors who were elected in the first round and have a majority in the Regional Councils and the respective governing bodies, but the problem is too big for the other regions of the country and very- too big to hundreds- literally- municipalities.
The government is determined to proceed as soon as possible a legislative intervention to address this issue and to enable governors to have in any case the majority of the Regions governing bodies.
This is the fundamental reason why we perform today's meeting.
I would like to have the views of each of you about what is the right way to tackle this major problem.
And because we want to have an overall view of things, We invited all elected regional governor of the country and not just those directly experiencing this problem in the Region's governing bodies. I would like, also, I have a brief update on the situation of your services related to civil protection, as we have been informed that it is imminent in a number of the country, New wave of bad weather.
We started the first day with some difficulty. We had a huge problem in Chalkidiki, where I want to note that the Civil Protection services of Central Macedonia worked very hard to make ends meet, together with the remaining portions of the state machine.
We are interested to be absolutely ready so from the perspective of the Government, we can deal with any problem ".
