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.
