Decentralisation of power

is the transfer of political and administrative powers from the state authorities to local self-government bodies. Powers, along with the finances, are transferred closer to people where they can be used most effectively. The powers are transferred together with the resources necessary for the exercise of these powers and establishment of state control over the legality of acts of local self-government.

Delegated powers

are separate powers of the state (education, healthcare, social protection, culture), the performance of which is transferred to local self-government bodies. The state retains the right to control the progress and consequences for the exercise of these powers, as well as the obligation to fund them through separate subventions and taxation.
