Is the executive branch of The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It consists of 300 delegates. The delegates will equally represent districts in Yugoslavia. Currently each delegate will represent approximately 50,000 Yugoslavs (ooc: assuming the population of Yugoslavia is 15 million). The Federal Assembly is responsible for constitution changes and for choosing the direction of The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (foreign policy, economy, military, spending).Republic Assembly
Exist in each of the six republics and two autonomous provinces. They are free to locally govern in any way as long as they do not contradict federal policy. Communes
Local government in Yugoslavia was based on the unique institution of the commune, defined as "a selfmanaging sociopolitical community based on the power of and selfmanagement by working-class and all working people." Currently there are 250 communes in The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and they are growing in size and number. The communes held all political authority not specifically delegated to government at the federal or republic level; unlike other bureaucratic systems, the communes truly embolden the workers. Communes control functions such as economic planning, management of utilities, and supervision of economic enterprises were the responsibility of the commune. The Federal Executive Council
The Federal Executive Council (FEC) is a 14 person council responsible for everyday governing operation of the government. The FEC consisted of a prime minister and two deputy prime ministers who are elected Assembly, and the secretaries, of the twelve major federal bureaucracies (the secretariats of finance, foreign affairs, defense, labor, agriculture, industry and energy, internal affairs, foreign economic relations, domestic trade, transport and communication, development, and legal and administrative affairs). Any Republic or Autonomous Province not represented in the FEC gets one representative minister without portfolio.
The FEC debated practical aspects of all national problems, making the FEC the most important national center of political debate, compromise, and influence. The FEC produces compromises on controversial issues among opposing republics, and second only to the party as a decision--making body. By definition, it controlled all federal bureaucracies and had exclusive access to expert information needed for policy making. Judicial System
The Federal Court
The Republic Court
Joining a trade union is voluntary. Strikes and work stoppages are neither legal nor illegal. The Confederation of Trade Unions of Yugoslavia is the official national trade union of Yugoslavia. Trade unions have the constitutional mandate of protecting the rights of workers and preserving the self-management system. There is no contradictory/adversary purpose of trade unions in Yugoslavia.ELECTIONS
Every citizen from age 16 and up can vote in the upcoming Federal and Republic elections. This differs sharply from Yugoslavia’s last election where only citizens from the age 18 and up, who didn't give support on any way to the reactionary Mihajlovic forces during the war, could vote. Any Yugoslav candidate can run for office, not just from the National Liberation. All Republic Assemblies and the Federal Assembly are up for election. No party can run a candidate. All ballots are secret.
