The County Administrative Board is a government authority that exists in close proximity to the people in each county. We are an important link between the people and the municipal authorities on the one hand and the government, parliament and central authorities on the other. The work of the County Administrative Board is led by the County Governor, who is commissioned to monitor developments and inform the government of the county's needs.
