Languages of publication
In 2002 Poland introduced the principle of direct elections of executive bodies of municipalities. Currently there is a discussion regarding the possible limitation of holding this office to two terms. This article describes the legislative issues related to adoption of such a solution. The main part is devoted to the compliance of such a proposal with international standards, including the European Union law and the European Charter of Local Self-Government. Besides the author discusses national constitutional standards regarding election of local government bodies. The analysis leads to the conclusion that the proposed restriction is compatible with both all the above-mentioned legal orders.
