Abstract

Implementing democracy in provinces of the Central Highlands with the guideline "citizen know, citizen discuss, citizen do, citizen check" which was concerned by the Central Highlands authorities achieved many encouraging results. The implementation process has really promoted the democratic rights of local people classes, contributed positively to the construction of the government, promoted the role of the Fatherland Front and the mass organizations; built many self-management models in residential communities, created a positive change in the awareness and working style of civil servants towards being closer to citizen, respecting citizen and being more responsible to people. However, there are still many weaknesses arising due to many both objective and subjective obstacle. The ownership of the citizens in many places and localities is still violated, and citizens are not allowed to discuss and comment on issues related to "national policies and social welfare". To find suitable solutions, promote the ownership role of the citizens in all activities, create consensus in society, equality between the Central Highlands ethnic groups, constantly strengthen the great unity of all ethnic groups in the area in the development process, it is necessary to examine to clarify some barriers to the quality and effectiveness of the grassroots democratic implementation in the provinces of the Central Highlands of Vietnam.
