152 TIIE PUBLIC LAW OF FINLAND.

(76) The Rural Communes.

The organisation of the rural communes is
different from that of the towns, especially in
there being no magisterial bench nor other
public body of similar authority, and also in
that every commune, great or small, may
reserve to a communal council
(kommunal-stämma) the exercise of the right of
administration, the institution of a council of delegates
being merely optional.

As regards the qualifications required in
order to be a member of the rural commune,
and to exercise the franchise in it, they are
almost the same as in the urban commune.
Each unit of taxation counts as a vote.

The communal council elects its own
chairman, by whom it is convoked ; it has authority
in all communal matters.

The communal vestry (kommunalnämnd) is
charged with the execution of the decisions of
the council and with other functions belonging
to an administrative agent.
