The Lviv Oblast Council or Lviv Regional Council (Ukrainian: Львівська обласна рада) is the regional council (parliament) of the Lviv Oblast (region) located in western Ukraine.

Legislative framework[edit]

The Regional Council is a local self-government body representing the common interests of territorial communities of villages, towns and cities within the powers defined by the Constitution of Ukraine and Ukrainian Law On Local Self-Government in Ukraine.[2]

Composition and work procedure[edit]

The Lviv Regional Council consists of 84 members who are elected by Lviv Region residents on the basis of universal, equal and direct suffrage. Council members are elected for a five year term. In order to gain representation in the Council, a party must gain more than 5 percent of the total vote.[3]
