Meanwhile, Antigona Uka, presented the findings of the study report. According to her, the findings present the legal framework within the public institutions. Further, she added that regarding three main pillars that drive open governance, which are: 1. transparency, 2. participation and commitment, 3. control and supervision; the legal framework seems very well established. Uka added that according to the institute “Right to Information Rating (RTI)”, which measures the legal performancë of countries, Kosovo is ranked in the 21th place from 111 countries. She also added that even though the legal framework is very well established, in practice it leaves much to be desired. In conclusion, she declared that in order for the legal framework to be matched with practice implementation, each ministry should publish budgetary, operational, public procurement and organizational information in accessible media platforms, such as institutional web-pages
