This entirely depends on the terms of the General Partnership-Limited Partnership Agreement (GP-LP Agreement). The answer to this question does not lie in the governing legislation but rather, in the four corners of the agreement. Typically, it is General Partners who has decision making authority and control, however it is possible that this authority is given to the limited partners under the terms of the agreement.
