Local power is exercised by local authorities - i.e.
municipalities and parishes.
Local authority elections currently involve the election of each
municipal council, municipal assembly and parish assembly.
Representation in municipal councils, municipal assemblies and
parish assemblies is proportional - i.e. each organ includes
representatives of every political force (party, coalition of
parties, or group of citizens) that obtained enough votes.
As we can see, in this case it is not only parties and
coalitions that can put forward candidates for election, but also
groups of citizens organised into independent lists.
