This is the list of local governments in Malaysia.[1]

City[edit]

Local governments administrating a city are normally called City Council (Majlis Bandaraya). However there are local authorities which are called City Hall (Dewan Bandaraya) such as Kuala Lumpur City Hall, Kota Kinabalu City Hall and Kuching North City Hall. The usage of the term "city hall" is a possible misnomer since a city hall normally refers to the building which houses a city council instead of the local authority itself.
