Definitory Coordinates Regarding the Local Collectivities and the Representative Public Administration Authorities. The Case of the Counties from the North-East of Romania
Keywords:administrative-territorial units, national collectivity, territory, population, local public administration authorities
For an efficient and operative management of the public issues, the state organizes its territory in administrative units, as intrinsic parts of the national space in which there are local human collectivities characterized by collective interests distinct from the state ones. From this point of view, in the space of this article we propose to analyze the configuration of the administrative decoupling of the Romanian national space to describe the territory, the population and the local public administration authorities - definitory coordinates of the local collectivities, with specialization at the level of the counties in the north-eastern part of the country. The research conducted in the pages of this paper shows that territory and population are essential constituents for the existence of local communities themselves. Also, the resolution of public affairs in counties, municipalities, towns and communes is the responsibility of the authorities designated for this purpose by the local collectivities themselves from their territory. The rationale for which local communities are organized and for which the state recognizes them administrative powers lies precisely in a better resolution of local affairs and the interests of citizens in the respective administrative-territorial unit.
