One tier of local government = 13 municipalities, using present district boundaries, sucos will not be part of LG system
Phased approach: probably first batch of 4 municipal elections (Baucau, Bobonaro, Dili, Oé-cusse), second batch for remaining 9 municipalities
Fully fledged local governments with responsibilities for planning, budgeting and implementation of local service provision
Elected municipal assemblies and mayors, accountable to the MA, the municipal administration will be headed by a Executive Secretary (chief civil servant)
Gradual assigning of service delivery functions to Municipalities; initially devolution and delegation of responsibilities in two sectors: primary health and water provision
Providing Municipalities with appropriate financing and fiscal arrangements (transfers and fees but no right to levy taxes)
Build on existing LGSP steering committee and programme under Ministry leadership
