It can establish internal commissions and boards and is chaired by a speaker elected from among the councillors.

The mayor (Predsjednik opštine in municipalities and gradonačelnik in cities) is elected by the municipal assembly for a four-year mandate. He/she is the municipality’s executive body.  The mayor proposes regulations to be adopted by the assembly and is responsible for their implementation.
