Antigua and Barbuda is a bicameral parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy with two levels of government, central and local. Local government consists of a single local authority, the Barbuda Council, which governs the affairs of the Barbuda dependency. There is no constitutional provision for local government across Antigua; however the Barbuda Council is enshrined in the constitution. The Ministry of Health, Social Transformation, Consumer Affairs and Local Government in Antigua is responsible for oversight of the local government department. The Barbuda Council reports directly the Office of the Prime Minister and is empowered to collect taxes and deliver goods and services as well as to administer and regulate agriculture, forestry, public health, public utilities and roads for the island.
