Concejo abierto

The concejo abierto (literally: "open council") is the regime under which the local government of some small Spanish municipalities operate. A case of direct democracy,[1] the system allows for the existence of two bodies: the Mayor and the asamblea vecinal ("neighboring assembly"), also known as concejo, formed by all the electors of the municipality.[2] It is also used by other entities below the municipal level.[1]
