Municipalities and regions

Local self-government and the right to levy taxes are enshrined in the Swedish Constitution. This means that municipalities and regions can take decisions freely and independently. Municipalities and regions are governed by elected politicians in municipal and regional councils. Central government regulates and steers municipal and regional activities through acts, ordinances and regulations. Central government is also responsible for ensuring that municipalities and regions have good and equitable opportunities to provide effective, high-quality welfare.
