Employment in Montenegrin municipalities is a frequent subject of criticism. Recruitment which is not based on real needs and overstaffing affect the financial sustainability of municipalities and are also often linked to elections and highlighted as an instrument for exerting pressure on citizens, thereby undermining merit-based employment. Therefore, with this analysis, we wanted to test the extent to which the recruitment procedures have been improved and the organization and number of employees have changed since the last parliamentary election in 2016, as well as the adoption of the new 2018 Public Administration Optimization Plan. You can download the analysis here: PIN_HRM and MNE Municipalities (available only in Montenegrin).
