Objective bases of local democracy and local self-government.
The author focuses his attention on the factors that determine the right of urban and rural population to local self-government (natural bases and constitutional and legal principles in the first place). The object of study is interpreted in terms of a natural scientific, historic and sociological approach. The author examines the problems of correlation between centralization and decentralization, as well as a number of other serious issues. M.Vasiliev states that the independence of a local community, so difficultly ensured, is mostly subject to intervention by central and regional authorities. This independence is very easy to eliminate, if it has not become an integral part of the society by being realized through coherent law enforcement.
