Town and Municipal Council
The Town Council could be called the “Town Parliament”: it exercises legislative
functions. It is made up of a varying number of councillors, who are elected by the
citizens according to the proportional representation system for a 5-year legislation.
Councillors can be re-elected.
The Municipality is made up of 5 members with a president (called “the Syndic”) at
its head and 4 Municipal Councillors. The Municipality Members are elected by the
people for 5 years, on the majority system. The executive is entirely renewed at the
same time as the Municipal Council.
