Poviat self-government – a separate association of the local community in the structure of the state, functioning in the rank of a poviat, which by law is appointed to independently perform the tasks of public administration, and is equipped with material means to carry out the tasks imposed on it.
Poviat self-government is the second level of local government in Poland next to municipal and provincial self-government. County self-government has the ability to shape its own internal organization, including the election of county government bodies (county council, county management), as well as to enact local laws through these bodies.
Counties are formed by several municipalities (rural, rural-urban, urban). The executive authority in the district is the district board, chaired by the starosta. The board with the starosta is elected by the county council.
In addition, there are cities with county rights, which are urban municipalities that perform the tasks of the county. As a rule, these are cities with more than 100,000 residents with a few exceptions, such as Swinoujscie, Grudziądz, Zamosc, Sopot, Biała Podlaska, Swietochłowice, Leszno, Krosno. The functions of the county council are performed by the city council, and the functions of the county board and starosta are performed by the city president.
On December 31, 2011, there were 379 powiats in Poland, including 65 cities with powiat rights.
