About Ålands landskapsregering
Åland is a self-governed and monolingual Swedish landscape in Finland. The self-government gives the Ålanders the right to enact laws, decide on their internal affairs and exercise budgetary power. The Åland society is a democracy where the exercise of public power is based on the will of the people. General elections for the Åland legislature are held every four years. The legislature appoints a land council candidate who is commissioned to form a government. The Lagting then appoints land councils and ministers who form the Åland Provincial Government. The government controls Åland by proposing legislative changes or new legislation and by enforcing the legislative decisions.
