REGIONAL ADMINISTRATION BODIES

The administrative-territorial units of the Republic of Armenia include the marzes (regions), hamaynks (communities), the City of Yerevan (which has the status of a mars), and the district communities of Yerevan. Public administration is carried out in the marzes and in Yerevan, and local self-governance in the hamaynks.

The territory of the Republic of Armenia is divided into ten marzes, plus the City of Yerevan, which has the status of a marz. Public administration in the marzes of the RoA and in the City of Yerevan is regulated by the RoA Constitution, the laws, the Presidential Decree on Public Administration in the Marzes of the Republic of Armenia, the Presidential Decree on Public Administration in the City of Yerevan, and other legal acts.

In Yerevan and the marzes, public administration is performed by means of implementing the regional policies of the Government and coordinating the activities of regional services of republican executive authorities.
