Article 181 of the Constitution leaves the electoral system for local bodies with the Electoral Code:
“1. The bodies of local self-government are the community council and the community mayor, which shall be elected for a five-year term. The Electoral Code may prescribe direct or indirect election of the community mayor. In case of direct election of the community mayor, the principles of electoral law prescribed by Article 7 of the Constitution shall be applied.
2. The election procedure of local self-government bodies shall be prescribed by the Electoral Code."
