Abstract.2014 - 2015 faced a new stage of the municipal reform that considerably improved the legal regulation of local self-government authorities. Over the past two years of execution of the municipal unit's right to set their own procedure for electing their leaders, regional authorities have gathered experience that needs to be thought over and analyzed. Based on the analysis of election of municipal units' leaders out of candidates presented by the competition commission in 2016 - 2017 in the Kirov Region, the authors of the article analyze diverse and contradictory experience of electing municipal units' leaders and describe reasons that prevent from an efficient use of the aforesaid institution. In the course of their research the authors have used such methods as historical, comparative law, formal law methods and logical methods such as analysis and synthesis. In conclusion, the authors state that, on the one hand, regional authorities are interested in creation of a certain mechanism for electing leaders that they can control, mostly, for regions and urban districts, and for the purpose of conducting economic and social transformations without actually taking into account the opinion of the population and representational body, and, on the other hand, opportunity of a constituent to define the way of electing a municipal unit's leader creates social tension and disrespect of the deputy because it in fact push them aside from participating in the higihest authorities of municipal units.
