Summary/Abstract: As of writing this brief, Macedonia is in the wake of the first anniversary of the start of decentralization process. More than a year has passed since 1 July 2005 when it was marked the beginning of a very complex and major reform process the country has experienced since its independence. The importance of the first anniversary of the decentralization process comes at the critical era when the country is on the eve of starting with the second phase of the decentralization process when new fiscal and budgetary resources will be transferred from central government to the responsibilities of local self-government units. Also, it is the period when country is closely monitored by the EU institutions for its ability in being able to start with the accession talks.
