76. Subject to the following paragraphs, all the powers of a public establishment shall be exercised by a board of directors formed according to sections 78 to 82.
The powers of a public establishment contemplated in section 11 may be exercised by the board of directors formed pursuant to the establishment’s act of incorporation, provided that
(a) the immoveable assets utilized for the operation of the establishment are, on 21 December 1977, the property of a religious community or of a corporation created under the Act of incorporation of that religious community; and
(b) the establishment has received written authorization to that effect from the Minister.
Such board shall nevertheless remain subject to the other not inconsistent provisions of this Act and the regulations regarding the board of directors of a public establishment.
However, in the case of an establishment whose immoveable assets are owned by a non-profit corporation other than a corporation constituted under this Act, such board shall not alienate such assets or change the destination thereof without the agreement of the members of the owning corporation.
