Review: In his article Agakishiev analyzes legal issues that arise in the process of carrying out a local referendum on financial and economic bases of a municipal unit. The author examines peculiarities of carrying out such a referendum that covers composition of local budget, use of municipal property and problems which resolution implies additional withdrawal from local budget. Agakishiev gives results of his analysis of German, Switzerland and USA legal acts on the matter. The methodological basis of the research includes a set of general and special research methods: dialetical, logical, systemic, comparative law, historical, formal law and other methods used both collectively and individually. A lot of authors such as A. Avtonomov, V. Komarov, A. Kostyukov, L. Nundenko, V. Pylin, D. Ustinov, A. Sergeev, E. Shugrin and Agakishiev himself have studied the institution of local referendum. The scientific novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the author discovers legal issues that may arise in the process of conduction of local referendums on financial issues. The results of the research prove that there is very little opportunity to carry out a local financial referendum in Russia. Based on the experience of the foreign states, the authro of the article makes suggestions on how to improve the legal regulation and increase opportunity for citizens to participate in financial issues.
