The ACT has internal self-government, but Australia's Constitution does not afford the territory government the full legislative independence provided to Australian states.
Laws are made in a 17-member Legislative Assembly that has all state and local government functions.
However, its decisions can be overruled by the Australian Governor-General ( effectively by the national government ) under section 35 of the Australian Capital Territory ( Self-Government ) Act 1988.
( See also Electoral systems of the Australian states and territories ).
Members of the Legislative Assembly are elected via the Hare Clarke system.
The ACT Chief Minister ( currently Katy Gallagher, Australian Labor Party ) is elected by members of the ACT Assembly.
The ACT Government is a member of the Council of Australian Governments.
