The next municipal elections will be in 2025. We will then have an opportunity to choose who will represent us in municipal decision-making bodies. Municipal elections are essentially about local democracy. There we elect the decision-makers who are closest to us and shape our daily lives.
The important role of municipalities in our everyday lives cannot be emphasised enough. Municipalities determine how services will be developed in the coming years, for example child day care, early childhood education and care, services for older people, road maintenance, basic education and sports and cultural services.
