UACS SPS students followed a presentation on U.S. Hatch Act

On March, 1, 2017, UACS SPS students taking the course in Administrative Law and Public Administration with the course instructor, Asst. Prof. Marina Andeva, PhD, had a unique opportunity to follow a presentation on U.S. Hatch Act.

The presentation was delivered by Ms. Ana Galindo-Marrone, Chief of the Hatch Act Unit at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel and it was held at the American Corner Skopje premises.

Ms. Ana Galindo-Marrone provided an insight into the rule of law and governance under the Hatch Act introduced by the U.S. Congress in 1938, explaining how the act prevents pernicious political activity. Furthermore, she elaborated on the reasons why the law was created, and discussed more about the Office of Special Counsel as an independent body of the U.S. Government.
