Local Elections

Local elections determine the line of decisions – and you can influence in other ways too. Decision-making in Kuusamo is based on the will of the council elected by general elections. The council is elected in spring for a four-year term of office. Town board and four committees in different remits are nominated by the local council for their term of office. The council designates also the mayor, who is subordinate to the town board.
