GAP: If new government has 12 ministries, €15.5 million will be saved

According to a study by Prishtina-based GAP Institute, if the Vetevendosje Movement (VV) and the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) keep their election promise for a government with 12 ministries, this would save €15.5 million from the state budget.

“Based on their election promises, the number of deputy prime ministers will be reduced from five to two. Ministries will be reduced from 21 to 12, the number of deputy ministers and political advisors will also be reduced. VV and LDK have promised that they will appoint no more than two deputy ministers in every ministry, which means that from over 80 deputy ministers in the previous government there would be a total of 24 deputy ministers,” the study notes.
