Summary/Abstract: Looking back and analyzing the flow of the reform process on the public administration in Macedonia there’s a perception that this is a never‐ending and quite complex process. All governments to date have never expressed any fatigue or dilemmas in relation to the reform. However, this willingness has not been all the time complemented with the right actions and strategies that would “incarnate” the idea of an ideal public administration system. The battle for power among political parties has many times undermined the general interest. Hence, the critical stand of the international factor toward the development of the reform, being closely monitored by them. The current government’s willingness to give priority to the EU agenda is mostly expressed through drafting laws compatible to the EU Aquis Communitaire. One of them is also the already approved Law on Public Servants, which was proposed by the Ministry of Justice. The initiation for drafting this law itself had opposite reactions, praised from ones and faced with strong opposition for the envisaged legal provisions from others.
