Barcelona City Council

According to the Barcelona City Charter, one of the basic criteria in the organization of the city is that the political aspects of law making, policy making and control, must be clearly differentiated from the administrative functions. For this reason, there are two levels of organization within the Barcelona City Council: the political and the administrative branch. The first includes elected members or councilors, who are able to take action - decisive, informative and/or advisory: the second is formed by different sectors that are directly involved, and they are responsible for management of the programs and execution of the resolutions, approved by the political branch.
