Abstract

The most important basic changes of the Lithuanian local government system occurred on March 11, 1990, with the Parliamentary declaration of reestablishing the Independence of the Republic of Lithuania. The transition from the authoritarian system to a democracy required the further clarification of the functions of local government through a number of laws.1 The legal basis for a real development of democratic local governance was set between 1994 and 1995. By implementing the Law on Territorial Administrative Units and Their Boundaries, the former system of two levels and five categories of 581 administrative units was replaced with a system of two levels and two categories of 66 administrative units.
