President of the Conference of European Regional Legislative Assemblies (CALRE) and Speaker of the Basque Parliament, Izaskun Bilbao Barandica has come to express her organisation's support for the draft European Charter of Regional Democracy which, in her view, will help ensure that “political solutions tie in more closely with citizens' expectations”.
On 20 November 2007, the Secretary General of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions took part in the debate on the draft additional protocol to the Charter of Local Self Government, and expressed his organisation's support for the general thrust of the text.
Riccardo Illy, President of the Italian autonomous region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, has since late 2006 also been President of the Assembly of European Regions (AER), which brings together 250 regions from 30 countries in Europe. He welcomes the drafting of the European Charter of Regional Democracy, and calls for closer co-operation between the AER and the Congress.
