The essence of incompatibilitas is a ban on combining by one person of two or more public functions. The inadmissibility of accumulation by a given operator of these functions takes place if an internal conflict occurs between competences arising from those. This conflict, in turn, has a negative impact on the quality, efficiency and impartiality of tasks carried out. Thus, in order to eliminate negative consequences of the implementation by public officials of divergent competences it became necessary to establish prohibitions of combining certain functions with other functions or public positions, as well as with a representative’s office. The addressees of these prohibitions are, inter alia, councillors and local government staff.
