Permissions of Council

Rights of Councilmen

Councilmen shall have certain rights to perform their duty. As members of the Council which is based on the system of mutual consultation and agreement, councilmen's rights are categorized into rights to be individually exercised by councilmen, and rights to be jointly by councilmen.
The Council's main rights include right to propose agenda, right to propose a motion, right to speak, right to vote, right to elect and be elected, right to introduce a petition, and right to request to submit documents.

Duty of Councilmen

As representatives of local people and members of the Council, councilmen hold duty. When a councilman neglects to perform his duty, he may be punished, and even lose his status of councilman.
Councilmen's duty includes duty to put public good first, duty to be upright and decent, duty to attend Council meetings and do their jobs with integrity, duty to refrain from taking certain jobs concurrently and doing certain deals, and duty to keep order.

Tenure of Councilmen

The tenure of councilmen is four years. In 1956, it was enacted as three years, but in 1958, it was returned to four year.
However, an exception was taken by giving a three-year tenure to 2nd Council's members who were elected in April 1995.
The tenure of councilmen begins from the next day after previous-term councilmen end their tenures.
However, in case general elections are held after the tenures of previous-term councilmen end, due to force majeure, the tenure begins from when councilmen are elected. Also, councilmen elected through by-elections commence their tenures from the day when they are elected and serve throughout the remainer of their previous councilmen's tenures. Councilmen elected through mid elections serve the remainder of the tenures.
