Local law acts adopted by the local bodies of the government administration
From Encyklopedia Administracji Publicznej
LOCAL LAW ACTS ADOPTED BY THE LOCAL BODIES OF THE GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION – provisions in force in the voivodship issued on the basis of statutory authorization by the bodies authorized to do so, i.e. local bodies of the government administration (→ local law). The voivode and bodies of the non-joint governmental administration have the law-making rights that refer to the creation of legal acts in force in the voivodship or its part. L.l. must be based on the authorizations included in the acts, and the bodies of the non-joint governmental administration are obliged to agree with the voivode on such legal acts. The voivode in the scope not regulated by statutes or universally binding regulations may issue order regulations in the event of the need to protect life and health of citizens and to ensure order, peace and public safety. Order regulations issued by the voivode must be forwarded immediately to the President of the Council of Ministers, the voivodship marshal, starosts and village mayors/mayors/presidents of cities depending on the local jurisdiction. The voivode’s ordinances may provide for the fine to be imposed for violation of the provisions contained therein. The President of the Council of Ministers may repeal all acts established by the voivode or bodies of the non-joint governmental administration in the event of: non-compliance with laws or executive acts issued for the purpose of their implementation, non-compliance with the government’s policy, violation of the principles of reliability and economy. In the event that the provisions of the ordinance issued by bodies of government administration violate the interest of citizens, they may be sued to the administrative court, which is entitled to order the supervisory body to perform necessary actions for the plaintiff (→ publication of local law acts) [ S. Kozłowski ].
