Rural popular assemblies

Six rural popular assemblies were estabilished in 2017 in the municipal merger districts of Riistavesi, Vehmersalmi, Karttula, Nilsiä, Maaninka and Juankoski. The asseblies operate under the supervision of the local democracy sub-committee appointed by the City Executive.

The role of the rural popular assembly is to promote the opportunities of local people to engage and influence.
