148 TIIE PUBLIC LAW OF FINLAND.

(75) The Towns.

Whoever exercises a commercial or industrial
trade or profession, or owns real estate, or lias
his legal residence in an urban commune, is a
member of that commune.

The right of administering communal affairs
is exercised, in towns with not more than 2,000
inhabitants, by the general assembly
(radlius-stämma) ; in towns with more than 2,000,
by the town council (stadsfullmäktige) or
delegates of the town. All towns of the first
category may decide, in a general assembly, to
establish a municipal council provided with this
right of administration.

The general assembly, in each town,
determines the amount of income of a person which
forms the unit of taxation, 200 marks being the
minimum and 400 marks the maximum
established by law. This assessment is taken for a
period of from three to five years.

The franchise is based on taxation — two
units of taxation are counted for one vote, three
units for two votes, four for four, and so on up
