Public Administration

The Moravian-Silesian Region comprises a territorial community of citizens who have the right to self-government. It exists as a public corporation that has its own assets and revenues, as defined by law, and that operates under the conditions defined by law and in accordance with its independent budget. The Region acts on its own behalf with regard to its legal relations and is responsible for whatever may arise from these relations.

The Moravian-Silesian Region is administered by its Regional Assembly; its other bodies include: the Regional Council, the Regional Governor and the Regional Authority. The Region looks after the overall development of its territory and the needs of its citizens.

The Region administers its affairs autonomously. The State Authorities can only intervene in autonomous competence, if required to do so to protect the law and only in the way prescribed by law. The extent of autonomous competencies may also be restricted by law.

The State can delegate some parts of the State Administration to the Region. The State Administration delegated to the regional authorities, is carried out by fulfilling its delegated powers. With regard to exercising State Administration the Region is an administrative district. The Region must make sure the delegated powers are exercised.
