Municipalities of Serbia


Municipalities of Serbia

There are 200 municipalities in Serbia: 124 in Central Serbia, 46 in Vojvodina and 30 in Kosovo (UNMIK). Of those, 29 are "urban municipalities", which are parts of cities of Belgrade (17), Kragujevac (5), Niš (5) and Novi Sad (2).

Like in many other countries, municipalities are the basic entities of local autonomy in Serbia: they have assemblies elected on local elections (held every 4 years), presidents ("predsednici opština"), property (including public service companies) and budget. Districts ("okruzi") are only administrative units, and have no assemblies or independent budget. In addition, the "urban municipalities" of the four cities above mentioned also have their city assemblies and other prerogatives; only their presidents are formally referred to as mayors ("gradonačelnici"), although the non-city municipality presidents are often informally referred to as such.

Advocates of reform of Serbian local autonomy system point out that Serbian municipalities (with 50,000 citizens in average) are the largest in Europe, both by territory and number of citizens, and as such can be inefficient in handling citizens' needs and distributing the income from the country budget into most relevant projects.
