Untitled[edit]

This article is completly wrong. Check UNMISET information. These are subdistricts, not municipalities. The Sucos would be closest to sth like a municipalities. Anyhow there are only 65 subdistricts and the former map showed old borders under Indonesian occupation. There was a change inb 2003. Even the naming kotamadya was Indonesian. J.

I deleted the wrong information, the article should be moved to Sucos of East Timor. Check for this and expanding this article de:Liste der Sucos Osttimors or nl:Lijst van sucos van Oost-Timor. J. Patrick Fischer 09:05, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
Don't worry, Patrick. I've expanded from the Dutch site of Wikipedia but I just want to re-verify in case that those are actually all of the 443 "sucos". Johnluisocasio 13:08, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Municipalities[edit]

It seems that municipality is a better term for suco than village, especially as they cover a wide area with a number of villages (aldeias) within them. For example the village of Fatubessi is in the municipality of Fatubessi, along with five other villages. --Bejnar (talk) 04:55, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes and no. There are plans to change the status of districts into municipalities. Sucos could be a village, several villages together, a part of a village, a part of a city... . All scientific and governmental papers I know are translating sucos into villages, but I would say "sucos" are "sucos". ;-) --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 05:55, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
