St Lucia is a constitutional monarchy with two levels of government: central and local. The constitution makes reference to local government but contains no specific provisions or protection. The main legislative text governing local government is the Constituency Councils Act 2012. Local elections were suspended in 1979, and since then the Ministry of Social Transformation, Local Government and Community Empowerment is responsible for the nomination of all councils. The functions and responsibilities of local government have been discharged by centralised authorities since 1980, and many of the services provided are carried out in tandem with other governmental agencies.
