Since June 30, 1993, Malta has been subdivided into 68 localities, governed by local councils, Maltese: kunsilli lokali, meaning municipalities or borough . These form the most basic form of local government and there are no intermediate levels between it and the national level. The levels of the 6 districts (5 on the main island) and of the 3 regions (2 on the main island) serve statistical purposes.

According to the Local Councils Act (Chapter 363 of the Laws of Malta), Art. 3:[1]

(1) Every locality shall have a Council which shall have allsuch functions as are granted to it by this Act
(5) each locality shall be referred to by the name as designated in the Second Schedule and any reference to that locality shall be by the name so designated.
