Summary/Abstract: In the broad sense, municipal privatization involves restitution, land re-lease, land and buildings sales, and privatization of municipal enterprises, the transformation of the ownership of municipalities into private, regardless of the form in which this municipal property operates economically. Although they are carried out under different laws, these processes are interrelated because they are carried out on a given territory, governed by local authorities, and lead to a restriction of municipal ownership at the expense of the private one. The general dissatisfaction with the privatization process in the country extends to the process at the municipal level. Although 475 privatization decisions were taken by the end of December 1993 and 374 sites were assigned, only 52 transactions were in effect. Few municipalities have made efforts to prove that legislation and regulations are a major obstacle to privatization.
