Basic People's Congress Arabic: مؤتمر شعبي أساسي‎ (Mu'tamar shaʿbi asāsi ) is the smallest administrative subdivision in Libya. Geographically it corresponds approximately to the level of a township or borough.

Under Muammar Gaddafi's Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya regime, political caucuses and committees of the Basic People's Congress operated at this level.[1] Representatives from the Basic People's Congresses regulated operations at the higher shabiyah (district) level.[1]
