Fact Sheet | Village Democracy in the Regulatory Framework of the Village Law.


Village, according to Law No. 6 of 2014 (Village Law), is a community that has the authority to regulate its own affairs based on the function of self-governing community.

The following are several issues related to village democracy as stipulated by the Village Law.
