The constitutional principle of decentralization of power, adopted in the Constitution, gains its particular realization by the way of performing public tasks by tiers of local-self government. The consequence of above meaning of decentralization is independence of aforementioned tiers of local-self government which act in their own name and under their own responsibility. Simultaneously, they are subject to verifying supervision, based on the criteria of legality, and to control which is exercised by statutorily described control state bodies. However, more and more often, the activity of authorities and organizational entities of local-self government is being subjected to control performed by authorities which were created for different purposes than control over local-self government. The aim of this article is to identify those authorities, their control prerogatives, and controlled situations in the light of binding provisions of law.
