Local finances are subject of only limited debate, connected usually with the unreasonable high expenditures and low efficiency. This situation is then abused for support to the amalgamation or simple reduction of the number of municipalities. In the article we are trying to understand if there is any connection between different perspective on local self-government and the distribution of the finances. The research shows only indirect connection that requires additional study in order to fully confirm that the non-party mayors have different budget management approach. So far the research only confirms this as a possibility which might be strongly dependent on other factors, such as demographic composition of individual municipalities.

Key words: Slovenia, budgetary management, local self-government, independent politics
