Summary/Abstract: Given the fact that the principle of federal participation, which is reflected in the participation of federal units in the central government, is one of the basic principles underlying each orderly federal government, the authors of this paper deal with the issue of participation of federal units in execution of power in the federation. Likewise, since the federally regulated state is characterized by the coexistence of two levels of legal systems, i.e. two levels of authority, federal government and federal government units, and that apart from the constitution of the federation are the constitutions of the federal units, the authors, in basic terms, address the issue of relationship between the two constitutions. Apart from general considerations of above topics, they are also observed through a comparative analysis of the constitutional system of the United States, as the oldest existing federation in the world, and that of the Switzerland and Germany, as the two oldest federations on European soil. In order to facilitate understanding of the topic, the authors of the paper discuss on the very concept of the major characteristics of the federation i.e. federal system of government.
