From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Baladiyah (Arabic: بلدية‎) is a type of Arabic administrative division that can be translated as municipality or district. The plural is baladiyat (Arabic: بلديات‎).

See municipalities of Algeria where Baladiyah is used to refer to tertiary level administration divisions, and municipalities of Lebanon, municipalities of Qatar where it is used for top level divisions.

The current Districts of Libya (the top most administrative divisions) are called shabiyat, but the former ones were called baladiyat, sometimes also translated as governorates.
