Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov presented a web resource with public data of the COTA system’s open part: “Spatial and functional transformation of Ukraine: representative bodies of local self-government in the context of decentralization”
A web resource with open data, which is used to monitor and comprehensively analyze the state of national security in terms of regional development trends, forecasting socio-political, economic and social processes at the regional level, has been launched in Ukraine.
The process of decentralization of power has been ongoing in Ukraine since 2014. The broad powers and resources received by local governments through decentralization reform also require an improvement in the system of control over their activities, in particular by the public.
A web resource with public data of the COTA system’s open part: “Spatial and functional transformation of Ukraine: representative bodies of local self-government in the context of decentralization”, which can be used by any citizen of Ukraine, is an auxiliary tool that will increase efficiency, transparency and accountability of local authorities.
It was developed by the Staff of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine within the “COTA” information-analytical system.
Users will be able to receive real-time prompt, up-to-date and reliable information on all key processes and indicators that characterize the life of the regions.
The web resource was presented at the National Coordination Center for Cybersecurity at the NSDC of Ukraine by Secretary of the Council Oleksiy Danilov.
The web resource consists of several blocks.
The first – “Territorial organization of local government”, where users can familiarize with the new administrative-territorial structure of Ukraine and get additional statistical information.
The second – “Monitoring of the election process” – contains data allowing for a comparative analysis of the results of local elections held this year, particularly in terms of party representation and self-nomination, candidates and elected deputies of local councils, heads of the amalgamated territorial community and more.
The third – “Formation of representative bodies of local government” - where you can see the summary of this year’s election, in particular, the total number of registered voters, the number of votes cast for each candidate, the number of spoiled ballots, the number of invalid ballots and actual voter turnout.
Thus, thanks to this resource, journalists, analysts, experts will be able to carry out a comprehensive analysis of the regional dimension of the newly elected representation of local communities.
