Voivodeship self-government – a separate (inhabiting a certain territory) in the structure of the state, an association of regional communities functioning with the rank of voivodeship, 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. The provincial self-government has the ability to shape its own internal organization, including the election of provincial self-government bodies (provincial assembly, provincial board), as well as to make local laws through these bodies.

By the term voivodeship and voivodeship self-government is meant the regional self-governing community and the relevant territory.

Competencies[edit | edit code].

Provincial self-government bodies act on the basis and within the limits of the law. The scope of action of the provincial self-government includes the performance of public tasks of a provincial nature, not reserved by law for governmental administrative bodies. The scope of action of the provincial self-government does not violate the independence of the district and municipality, and the provincial self-government bodies do not constitute supervisory or control bodies vis-à-vis the district and municipality, and are not organs of higher degree in administrative proceedings.

The provincial self-government performs public tasks specified by law on its own behalf and on its own responsibility, disposes of provincial property and conducts independent financial management on the basis of the budget.

The province has legal personality.

The voivodeship self-government, on the basis of statutory authorizations, establishes local acts of law binding on the territory of the voivodeship.
