Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Kilkis, of which it is a municipal unit.[2] Population 7,279 (2001). The seat of the municipality was in the village of Kampanis.

The municipality Gallikos was created after 13 small villages in the area south of the city of Kilkis merged in the late 1990s when the Greek government implemented its Kapodistrias[3] project to fuse - and thus limit the number of - local authorities in the country.
