Namibia

The administrative division of Namibia is tabled by Delimitation Commissions and accepted or declined by the National Assembly. The First Delimitation Commission chaired by Judge President Johan Strydom suggested in 1992 that Namibia be divided into 13 Regions, a number that has been amended by the 4th Delimitation Commission. The new division has 14 Regions and 121 Constituencies.[1]
