The Executive Powers of the District Council rest on the Executive Committee of the District Council, which is headed by a Chief Executive Member. His position in the Executive is akin to that of the Chief Minister or Prime Minister and the Executive Committee to that of the Cabinet at Centre or State. Normally the leader of the majority party gets elected as the Chief Executive Member. However, the post has to be contested through election.
The Chief Executive Member exercises all its executive powers in the name of the Executive Committee of the District Council.
