Crystal councils: transparency for a government open to the public. (12/09/2018)

The new times in politics, the social reality of the moment are marked by keys or parameters of such depth as can be the principle of transparency, a value that is set day by day to respond to that just and logical requirement of citizens in the that to honesty and clarity in the good destiny and management of their taxes, of their public moneys should make the leaders.

In this aspect, the tasks of auditing the economic management of, for example, the municipalities as the closest administration and committed to the welfare of the citizens marks an optimal evolution in the fulfillment of transparency in recent years, with a very high visible of the ratio of rendering of accounts of the municipalities especially of those of the Region of Murcia.

We are talking about a good result that has been achieved through not a few factors (from the effect of the legislation established for this purpose to the collaboration of the different administrations to streamline the process of accountability of the consistories and the important and growing awareness Social).

And to walk this road with significant achievements, the projection of transparency has not been due only to a mere poster or rhetorical concept or the need to comply with an administrative procedure.

The principle of transparency can also be seen as a factor of democratic quality, because all neighbors have the right to know where our taxes go, public money being configured as a mechanism of control, external control to ensure compliance with the law.

But it also represents a tool to create day by day more efficiency.

And it is that rationalizing spending inevitably leads to more resources to cover the attention of priority services, basic in the municipalities and, therefore, to activate / reactivate the local productive fabric in a work that contributes to retake with firm step the path of economic recovery.

It is the same as what happens at the level of private enterprise, where the audit of their production or service provision mechanisms serves to discover gaps or weaknesses and to arbitrate corrective measures to improve the pace, the development of the business field .

In public administrations, these recipes must be quantified within the framework of a public commitment that, in short, is with the public.

The sphere of new technologies today enables any neighbor to have at hand the simple and immediate consultation of the accounts of their corresponding municipality through the municipal web portal as well as the free use of the data of their public positions and other periodic and updated information of local government related to its activity, operation and results;

in short, transparency as a commitment and response of a work of economic and financial management as the mainstay of political execution and response to the program proposals with which the parties attend the electoral arena.

What has been described are advances to establish transparency as the essence of democratic health that should govern all government work because an institution such as a town hall, the Autonomous Community or the State itself must confer legitimacy on their actions every other day.

Transparency is something that can no longer be lacking as a citizen's demand and there have been notable advances in that line although there is still work to be done.

And as a response to that promise of our leaders that the institutions in front of them should have the glass walls for citizens to see what they do and how they carry it out, duties that, according to the most recent evaluation report of items of the NGO "Transparency International", municipalities of Murcia such as Las Torres de Cotillas strive to comply fully, to the detail, positioning itself as one of the most transparent consistories of the Region and Spain and improving time after time, review after exam, its levels in that prestigious and realistic ranking.
