Regional democratic problems that is discussed are the political responsibility and the power distribution between the political actors on the regional level. A solution of the problem could be to organize the regional society structure in accordance with one of the following organization models"Statligt regionalt ansvar","Kommuner i samverkan"or"Regionalt folkstyre". The result of the study indicates that the Centre Party, the Liberal Party, the Christian Democrats, the Green Party and the Left Party can accept the model namned"Regionalt folkstyre". The Moderate Party has another political opinion that coincide with the model"Kommuner i samverkan". The opinion of the Social Democratic Party does not fully correspond to any of the defined models. A compromise model supported by all parties might give good opportunities for a stable and successful development of the region.
