Regions of Malta

Malta is subdivided into 5 regions (Maltese: reġjuni). Three regions were originally created by the Local Councils Act of 1993, and were integrated into the constitution in 2001.[better source needed] Two of the regions were split into smaller ones by Act No. XVI of 2009, and now there are five regions. Malta is divided into five regions without administrative functions.

Each region has a Regional Committee (Maltese: Kumitat Reġjonali), which consists of a Regional President, a Vice President, an Executive Secretary and between 10 and 14 members.[full citation needed]
