How the prefectural government works

ID番号 N28940 更新日 平成29年4月10日

The Iwate Prefectural Government is led by the democratically-elected Governor and Prefectural Assembly. Serving underneath them are around 4,000 civil servants in the head prefectural office and regional branches and bureaus. There is also the Board of Education, police force, and other public commissions which work under the prefecture.

The Prefectural Assembly is made up of 48 representatives elected by the Iwate people. The Assembly hears the will of the people and decides the rules and budget necessary for the prefectural government’s initiatives in order to make an Iwate that’s nice to live in.
The Prefectural Assembly normally meets four times a year, with more meetings when necessary.
