Communes of Haiti

Communes are roughly equivalent to civil townships and incorporated municipalities.

Administration[edit]

Each commune has a municipal council (conseil municipal) compound of three members elected by the inhabitants of the commune for a 4-year term. The municipal council is led by a president often called mayor.

Each commune has a municipal assembly (assemblée municipale) who assists the council in its work. The members of the assembly are also elected for 4 years.

Each commune is ruled by a municipality.
