Territorial self-government in Russia, the democratic potential of the state

today the cornerstone of Russia is the problem of formation of legal consciousness of the population.Constitution article be named the first Russian democratic state.But the power of the people can not survive in the absence of proactive citizens who are able to realize their collective needs and self-organization to implement them.That is why today so urgent the idea of ​​formation of a civil society.

declarative nature of the Constitution can justify the consolidation of its provisions, which are still far from realization.However, to fully realize even the first part of the first article of the basic law is not possible by strengthening the central government.A transfer of powers and responsibilities to regional bodies, accompanied by cuts in funding, has nothing to do with decentralization.In addition to the real, and not having a place to be today, to support the development of the Federation, throughout the municipalities should be formed territorial self-government.

development of this form

of public participation in local government - evidence of awareness by the people not only of their direct impact on the fate of the city, the region, but also to determine the value in the management of the state.Thus, true democracy can emerge "from below" rather than "from above".Territorial public self-government, its distribution and dynamic development - the first step in the process of formation of a civil society.

Thus, the form of self-organization of residents of the municipality for the implementation of its initiatives to address local problems can be registered as a legal entity.Territorial public self-government can be called a combination of direct influence on the formation of the institutional population about their lives and work of the elected bodies.The legal basis of this form of expression of the citizens are disclosed in the provisions of the Charter of the municipality.

territorial public self-government can be carried out in two ways: through conferences on each individual issue, or by election and empowering permanent bodies.

Under this form of self-organization can conduct its business and affect the legal regulation at the local level.In the first case we are talking about maintenance of housing, landscaping, and other social and household needs of citizens.

Participation in the legal regulation of public self-government carries through making proposals - draft municipal acts.These initiatives, by law, have to be considered by the local authorities.

In addition, the public authorities can issue contracts with municipal authorities using budget funds of administrative and territorial unit.It provides financial opportunities for citizens to exercise their social and living needs.
