- Positions of the Council
Position as representative organ
The local council shall be composed of the members elected by the residents and have the position as the representative organ to review and determine important proceedings of local government. In the politics of indirect participation, where the residents participate in the local autonomy by electing their representatives, the council shall have the important meaning to represent them.
Position as the deliberate organ
The local council as the deliberate organ means that the council shall have the function to finalize the proceedings of the local government. That is, the council shall determine the matters of the residents' charges, enacting the ordinances and operating organizations, in which general policies are reviewed and finalized. The execution of the determination by the council shall be undertaken by the local government(authorities) while it does not have the same meaning of advisory as it keeps the right to finalize the proceedings of the local government.
Position as the legislative organ
The local council shall have the position to enact the ordinance, the statue governing local government and undertake the related functions. That the local council exercises the legislative right is undertake the very fundamental function. Although the governor of the local government has the right of enactment, it is constituted by the entrustment from the ordinance enacted by the local council.
Position as auditing organ
The local council shall have the position to monitor and audit whether the local government as the execution organ has administrated legally and reasonably. That the council exercises the function is suggested by two theories; one that the function supplements the legislative function and the other that the function is just one of the fundamental functions.
