For several decades in a row a tendency to delegate legislative, executive and judicial functions to state administration institutions that do not belong to the system of executive bodies has been developing in various states. There exist several reasons for establishing such institutions. In states in which the abovementioned institutions emerged before the establishment of the EU the expansion of such institutions is grounded on the fact that in society there exist spheres the regulation of which should be separated from political cyclicity in order for the decisions to be long-term and based on technical and economic expertise. In young EU states, the development of such institutions is associated with the provisions of liberating directives intended for national regulatory authorities. Such institutions are given wide discretional authority in the implementation of regulatory functions. Thus, they become the "target" of various interest groups that seek for favourable decisions. The main instrument of defence from such influences is a proper legal establishment of the independency guarantees of regulatory authorities. The present dissertation research is aimed at identifying the dysfunctions of the legal regulation of political independence of regulatory authorities and suggesting possible alternative institutional models for the Lithuanian system of state administration institutions.
