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.[1] Two of the regions were split into smaller ones by Act No. XVI of 2009, and now there are five regions.[2]

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.[3]
