Apostolova said that Ramush Haradinaj’s government instead of paying millions for payments and other privilges of 80 deputy ministers should focus on implementing reforms. “Kosovo has 80 deputy ministers, I don’t want to make comparisons, but you understand the point, 75 million euro should be spent in implementing reforms and not salaries. I urge on reorganisation of public administration, and not make excessive spending for paying deputy ministers,” said Apostolova. She made these comments during the presentation of the findings of the “Functional Revision of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology”, a project funded by the EU Office in Kosovo
.Apostolova said also that Kosovo has marked no progress according to the European Commission Report published recently. “Comparing with previous year’s report Kosovo has made no progress in developing the education system therefore we have decided to prioritise not in a short term, results of this reform will be seen after many years,” said Apostolova and called on authorities to implement recommendations of the EU documents.
