Quote from: Üc R. Tärfâ on Today at 09:04:05 AMYou keep talking about transparency, but in your posts (I added the underlines in the quotes above) there's always this part about the Government making the report: how there can be any transparency at all if a Government is required to report on itself?
"Government" is being used here to refer to the entire governing apparatus, including civil servants, not "the Government" (ie the elected and politically-appointed Cabinet).
And you're reinforcing what we're saying: it would be good to have the Burgermeister be obligated to give a Financial Report at the end of the term, rather than passing it through Finance and presenting it concurrently with the budget after the election. This is another point in favor of the proposal.

You seem to actually understand what we mean when we refer to the government reporting, and you have already noted that the bill itself refers to the Burgermeister. I don't think anyone has proposed differently here.

- keep the Civil Service, the Burgermeister, (and not the Government) in charghe of Reporting and supervising how money are spent, just like we have the Civil Service, the Secretary of State, (and not the Government) in charge of the elections;
- detach the final report from the budget (the Government won't have to attach the report to the budget bill);
- add a compulsory preliminary report at the end of the Cosă term (by the Burgermeister) before the Election to give people voting the opportunity to have a report on how money were or werent' spent by the outgoing Government;
- the final report will cover the period from one budget to the other as accounting practice requires.
I don't quite understand why this is a compromise. This is pretty much just exactly what @Tric'hard Lenxheir proposed. Two mandatory financial reports: one at the end of the Cosa, and one at the time of the budget. It looks like the only difference is that you want the second one issued independently of the budget, by the Burgermeister alone. A return to the system from back in the day works great for me, lol - in for a penny, in for a pound! @Tric'hard Lenxheir , would this be okay with you?
