In the article, in brief, there are approximate norms of the canonical law which refers to elections, and then is talks about the statute law of the Society of St. Francis de Sales related to electoral rules. In this Society, canonical elections precede the embrace the office of the Superior General, similarly as the Commissary, councilors of each sections and regional councilors forming central authorities. Elections bring to light also delegates from every province on the General Chapter, and representatives on the province chapter. The study of the own law of the Salesian Society does not raise legal doubts. Instead in effect of electoral one ought to keep indications of the public statute of the Church. The incautiousness in this matter can be a no valid choice. Canonical elections create one of the elements of the own law. Simultaneously it underlines that elections are the joint responsibility of the religious for the realization of the salesian charisma: on local and province level and in the life of the whole Salesian Society.
