You are here: Public administration › Self-government
Municipal self-government is a spatially determined operational unit which has been entrusted to decide its own affairs. The municipality, as the fundamental municipal self-governing entity, and the region, as a higher-level self-governing entity, are both examples of municipal self-government. Their privilege to govern autonomously is laid out in the constitution, the Law of Municipalities and The Law of Regions. Self-governing entities create their own executive apparatus.
